PROGRAM NOTE

"Foot Tapping Song" was written in five-and-a-half hours on a Friday in September as part of the Iron Composer competition sponsored by ANALONG Arts and held at Baldwin-Wallace University. Since my secret musical ingredient had to involve the audience "foot tapping" to my future piece, I thought I would give the audience something to tap their feet to.

 

The title of this piece tips its hat to The Meter's "Hand Clapping Song" from their album Struttin'.
