Featured at the 2019 Percussive Arts Society International Convention in Indianapolis, IN. The Alchemist is Provost's homage to the great steel pan pioneer, Ellie Mannette. The piece begins with a beautiful hymn choral that segues into a floating melody and contemporary harmonies backed by a light 6/8 groove feel and random"tuning" pan sounds. The piece weaves and grows through beautifully crafted canonic material before culminating in a final hymn choral.
