Program Note

Sometimes a shimmering glow is not enough to keep one satisfied and content, sometimes the source of that illumination is what one needs. Not the light, but the fire that burns aims to give the listener a journey through varying intensities of energy, from an effervescent buoyant opening, to low piano and dark gong soundings evocative of deep longings, to a relentless closing of toms, gongs, and piano going full force.

 - Gilbert Galindo

Not the light, but the fire that burns (2015, rev. 2017) was written for Iktus Percussion.
