ABOUT THE PIECE:
This piece is written about Huehuecoyotl, the Old Coyote, also known as the Ancient Drum. He is a trickster, capable of reversals and pranks, often cruel ones. Huehuecoyotl is also a god of storytelling, music, dance and merriment. Huehuecoyotl’s tricks are often played on other gods but frequently backfire and cause more trouble for himself than the intended victims. He is a great party-giver, but also alleged to foment wars between humans to relieve his boredom.

Commission by Mr. Matt Mackey and composed for Franklin High School (Elk Grove, CA) in Fall 2012 by Brian Aguilar.
