Throb is an improvisational piece inspired by the complex rhythmic figures which can emerge from simple steady pulses. The players are given a basic framework of how to perform the piece, sometimes coordinating with each other but, for the most part, they are off in their own rhythmic worlds. While the players are often uncoordinated as far as pitches and rhythms, the players are unified as to emotional and gestural material.
Performed by Jeff Moore and Kirk Gay
