Adam Neely tackled the concept of playing the “unperformable rhythm” in one of his videos. This rhythm is a quaver off-beat crotchet triplet figure that gets its difficulty from the fact that it does not reinforce any common pulse subdivisions and must be approached with a full knowledge of how the triplet interacts with the native beats and pulses of the bar. The effect of this “impossible” rhythm is somewhat strange and unique, which is what this piece, Diabolical Demands, is all about!
Diabolical Demands takes the difficulty of the off-beat triplets and takes it to the next level with all kinds of diabolical quartal harmonies and driving rhythms that make the piece build into an exciting and irresistible climax! If you want to perform something that is technically difficult and unique to the rest of your repertoire, this is definitely the piece for you! Have fun!
