Punched Out was written for Justin Cook and Ryan Robinson.
This challenging piece punctuates the power of both instruments.
Individual but also as a team.
While writing this piece, Steven Verhelst had the baseball field in mind.
A masculine, testosterone environment, where the line between individual quality, competition and teamwork is drawn.
Both instruments get to show their full ability in their own personality.
But at the end of the road, will they balance their power as a team or will they be punched out…
