Programme Notes

Boom-Box was composed in 1999 especially for the Sydney Symphony Orchestra's education concerts, in this case to be performed for year K-2 students. It formed one of the works written during Matthew Hindson's residency with this orchestra. It is a loud and vibrant piece that features the percussion section of the orchestra. It is envisaged to become one movement of a larger percussion concerto (i.e. for 3 percussionists and orchestra) sometime in the future. Matthew Hindson
