Tapas for Bassoon and Cello

Mayse, Jon Tapas Score-13.png

Tapas is suite of miniatures, based on the Spanish small-plates cuisine of the same name. The premise is the performers are free to pick and choose which "tapas" they want to perform, just as a diner would only eat the dishes that appealed to them. Contained in this suite are pieces based on extended techniques, such as harmonics, multiphonics, microtones, and percussive noises, as well as pieces based on styles, such as the French overture or a canon on a slinky, "Pink Panther"-style melody.
