About the work
Based on the Spanish Flamenco Palmas style of hand clapping, this piece also uses finger snaps and percussive vocal effects. The piece was written after a conversation with Chris Brannick of Ensemble Bash – which led to the idea of a percussion piece with no instruments.
First Performance: Ensemble Bash, Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, Oct 1998
The piece involves a variety of fingersnaps, nadclaps, and vocal effects.
