Year of composition
Percussed Perceptions was written for the Percadu Marimba and Percussion Duo (Two young Israeli percussionists: Adi Morag and Tomer Yariv), commissioned by the Raanana Symphonette and its executive director Orit Vogel. The piece was premiered in November 2005 in Israel.
The piece is conceived as a double concerto for percussion and string orchestra in six movements. Each movement depicts a perception of contemporary society. Living in such an agitated world, people react against such an unsettled environment. The variety of timbre and colour offered by the percussion instruments inspired me to write contrasting moods, which reflect our modern life.
