For percussion quartet. "Its four movements are INVOCATION — PULSE RADIANCE (Homage to Olivier Messiaen and Igor Stravinsky); PRAYER — STAR DUST ORBITS (Homage to Luciano Berio and Pierre Boulez); MANTRA — CEREMONIAL TIME SHAPES (Homage to Lou Harrison and György Ligeti); and REVERIE — CRYSTAL LATTICE (Homage to Edgard Varèse, Harry Partch and John Cage). "But there’s nothing New Age-y about this music, no numbing yoga-music serenity. 'Earth' burst irrepressibly and even joyously with life, dancing from the shimmering of Burmese temple gongs to brutal, almost shrapnel-like explosions of sound, in a sort of elemental and altogether rapturous song of the earth." — The Washington Post
