Originally conceived as a percussion trio in 2008, and arranged for mixed instrument chamber ensemble in 2010, Chimera No. 3 has been reworked and expanded into a dynamic work for string orchestra and percussion. An exciting piece to perform, players are taken through a wild ride of changing time signatures, metric modulations, lyrical passages, and extended techniques. All the while maintaining a jazz, pop, and latin influenced groove. Can also be performaed with string orchestra alone.
