Industrial Fantasia is written for percussion ensemble – piano, toms, marimba, cymbal, snare, and bass drum. The piece was originally written on piano and the percussion added later.
The idea behind the piece was to combine a classical style with an industrial rock style. The percussion instruments play more conventional and metrical rhythms – sometimes reminiscent of factory and machine sounds, while the piano anchors the piece with fast propulsive material in a contemporary classical style. The piano weaves in and out of states of contrasting and complimenting the percussion section.
