Wenzel, Molly Kay. 2023. Sandmon does Movedance. -- In Proceedings: 22nd Annual Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Forum. Wichita, KS: Wichita State University, p. 27
A "sandmon" is a groovy monster that lives near the oases of the desert. Although they spend most of their days alone, when a weary traveler happens upon their territory, the sandmon will perform its signature Movedance; a groovy dance that entertains all that witness it. Some say that the sandmon has the best dancing abilities in the world. This piece is a study on meter. The piece moves between grouping notes in groups of fives and groups of threes, which allows for a groove that moves and changes throughout the piece. The short articulations throughout add flair to the piano while the two flutes dance around with more connected notes to portray an upbeat melody.
Presented to the 22nd Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Forum (URCAF) held at the Rhatigan Student Center, Wichita State University, April 7, 2023.
