All Evil Summer Clowns Must Die in an arrangement of an excerpt from the saxophone Quartet, Obstinate Snakes! It was commissioned as part of the 2013 Make Music New York Festival, and performed both in New York City and Edinburgh, Scotland.
The ascribed "theme" for the piece was supposed to be about summer, or the summer solstice. The music itself is somewhat goofy, especially in this arrangement, hence the strange title.
