Unpacked for solo suitcase and its contents was designed as the ultimate get-up-and-go piece. As the title implies, the instrumentation is left completely to the discretion of the performer. It is designed to be an audience-friendly piece, allowing the percussionist to easily travel with all of the instruments in a single case. This piece is unique in that the performer must actually unpack and build their setup while performing. The groove orientated and fun loving nature of the piece is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Unpacked was commissioned and premiered by Dr. Tommy Dobbs.
