Gordon Stout (b.1952) is currently Professor of Percussion at the School of Music, Ithaca College, Ithaca, N.Y., where he has taught percussion since 1980.

This is a virtuoso work for marimba and drum set. It was written for Marco Schirripa (marimba) and Anthony DiBartolo (drum set) who premiered it at ZMF2015 at Rutgers University in New Jersey.

I consider it the logical extension of “Incoming” (2002) and “Outgoing” (2011). A belly button can be either an “inny” or an “outy,” hence the title of this work. There is a musical quote from the Woody Woodpecker cartoons; see if you can catch it!
