For this 20th birthday commission I wanted to write something for all ten core players of the Crash Ensemble where everyone contributes in equal measure. The piece is structured in twenty very short sections of seven bars each (one for each year) and the material only changes very slightly in each one as a result of overlapping phrases of different lengths. A key feature is the percussion which gradually accelerates within the ensemble. Is it just me or do the years seem to move faster as you get older?

Accel… is dedicated to the Crash Ensemble with affection and gratitude.
