My summer travels take me to Perdido Bay: ZZZZing! embodies the thrill of fishing off the coast of Florida and Alabama in the Gulf of Mexico. The composition tells the tale of running out in a thirty-foot boat, waiting for the fish, the struggles of the catch, and the ride back home across the water. ZZZZing! was written for Brian West and the TCU Percussion Ensemble.
