Program notes:
spin|orbit is a piece that use polyrhythms intensively and is about subjective tempo. Because it is not really clear what the pulse of the music is (there are several at the same time) and the combinations differ and change throughout, the tempo feel changes along. The music explores different combinations and techniques, goes through all the registers and is a real challenge, even for the professional percussion player. The piece is cyclic in nature and can start at the different sections and even selections of it can be played as an independent performance but also serve as an educational showpiece.
