Programme Note:
Jack is a work written for marimba, vibraphone and crotales. It is based on the poem performed and recorded by writer and gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson. Thompson wrote the poem as an "ode" to the American beat-generation writer Jack Kerouac whom he described as "one of his most influential friends." Musically, all material is derived from the speech melodies and rhythms of the spoken text, which is cut up and arranged to form various metric patterns.
