Legend of the Drop Bear 

Brian Balmages
Grade 3

Inspired by a trip to Australia, Balmages composed this programmatic work in honor of the fictitious, yet wildly popular drop bear. The ominous opening portrays the eerie feeling of walking about, not knowing if one of these horrific creatures will drop out of a tree and attack. Achievable aleatoric sounds add to the mystery as the drop bear finally reveals itself and panic ensues. Extremely creative and engaging!
