This We Have Now was commissioned by Clocks in Motion as a part of the Clock Shop Composer Residency, and was premiered at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas on the Nextet series March 2020. The title is from a quote by Rumi:

“This We Have Now is not imagination. This is not grief or joy. Not a judging state, or an elation, or sadness. Those comes and go. This is the presence that doesn’t.” – Rumi

This We Have Now, featuring the electronic MalletKAT, will be featured on their new album ONEIRA and released by Aerocade Music August 19, 2022.

*The original Clocks in Motion recording also showcases special features of the MalletKAT, such as the possibilities for range and color. The MalletKAT part can be modified in the future to fit another instrument, such as the hammered dulcimer and cimbalom, keyboard, or other mallet instruments. (Some pitches may need to be adjusted to fit register, specifically regarding some G6’s after letter F.)

**Percussion 2 can be split up between two players, if a fifth player is available to perform the piece. The drum set can be improvised, and can be performed more often throughout the piece if an additional player is available.
