This is a percussion ensemble mainly aimed at a lower-performing high school level. I wrote this one a little over two years ago. This piece is very “up and down,” if you will, as the tempo slows down and speeds up several times throughout.

FAQ's

There are many reparative mallet runs, and are pretty basic double patterns. lots of rolls in the mallets as well. The percussion section definitely does help keep the driving force of the entire piece. There are many overlapping phrases (ex. mallets playing three-bar phrases, will the percussion section plays four-bar phrases).
