A six movement (+1) suite for a variety of percussion instruments inspired by the colors of the now defunct Homeland Security Alert System: Green Alert (hand percussion), Blue Alert (mallets), Yellow Alert (snare & small percussion), Orange Alert (solo timpani) and Red Alert (the kitchen sink). Rounding it off White Alert a very short final footnote for cuica.
