An interpretation of a score by Candas Sisman called “SYN-Phon” recorded live by the Pique Collective at Union Craft Brewing in Baltimore, MD

For this score, the Pique Collective used flute, cello, keyboard, electric guitar, and an array of percussion instruments. Jeremy also used a synthesizing pedal to manipulate certain sounds through his guitar.

Below is an original composition by Jeremy Lyons titled, “Music for Exploding Heads.”

The piece was premiered by the Pique Collective in collaboration with the artist, Ann Walsh. Scored for Flute, piano, voice, guitar, and cello, the music is a commentary on the nature of thoughts that fill our heads. Ann smashes plaster heads, which are replicas of her own head, over the course of the piece in both a rhythmic and improvisatory fashion.
