Recording:
None

Percussion imitations of lots of clocks.

Program Note:
This simple percussion ensemble work for five performers and conductor is written in open style. Each performer has a set of repeating patterns, to be played on a variety of instruments. The conductor cues entrances and exits of individuals and shapes the overall texture, which evoke feelings of a clock shop.
