Deadly <strong>Nightshade</strong><br />

Theme on a 3rd Grade Rhythm<br />

Instrumentation:<br />

Violin I<br />

Violin II<br />

Viola<br />

Cello<br />

Bass<br />

Program Notes:<br />

This piece, as the subtitle may suggest, came about because of a rhythm that one of my 3rd grade<br />

classes made up. We were doing a little bit of “Erase and Replace” to work on the rhythm<br />

“ti-tika” or “eighth note-two sixteenth notes” for the non Kodaly people out there. The rule was<br />

there had to be at least one “ti-tika” in the rhythm at all times. By this point, the class had learned<br />

triplet and evidently, were feeling adventurous. So, after many rounds of “Erase and Replace”<br />

they eventually got to this rhythm:<br />

I thought it was one of the coolest 8-beat rhythms I had ever encountered, so I told them I was<br />

going to save this rhythm and make something out of it. Once I had finished the piece, it needed<br />

a name, and despite the fact that the nature-themed title is very on-brand for what I usually name<br />

my pieces, I did not come up with this one. I was actually really struggling with a name for this<br />

piece until I thought, who better to name it than the kids that inspired it. So after a short lesson<br />

about matching the name of the piece to the sound of the song, they listened to the piece and<br />

gave me suggestions for the name. I was committed to naming it whatever they voted for, so for<br />

a little while, I was afraid this piece was going to be called “Deadly Chicken Nugget”. But the<br />

top three contenders ended up being You’re Next, The Night You Die, and Deadly <strong>Nightshade</strong>,<br />

with Deadly <strong>Nightshade</strong> winning the vote by 2 points. Honorable mentions include El Muerto,<br />

Hypnotize, and Nightmare.
