Classical percussionists are some kind of non-binary musicians - they can play on various instruments, sometimes very different from each other. We can say that a percussionist is a social construct, as gender is. Genderfuck consists of multiple themes (e. g. amen break, free improv, metal-style percussion part), combined together in a moment form developing throughout time. This piece is heavily inspired by popular music, but yet it is using a lot of contemporary classical music - composer likes to call this piece a genrebending music, and he creates his music in such a manner since then.
