The Woodpecker and the Lumberjack by Ryan Meeboer. For percussion ensemble. Part(s); Percussion - Ensemble; Score. Eighth Note Publications. 10 pages. Published by Eighth Note Publications (AP.81-PE2911).
This programmatic percussion piece is a musical depiction of an encounter between a woodpecker (woodblock) and a lumberjack (guiro). The piece opens by setting the peaceful ambiance of rain falling in a forest before introducing some simple call/response figures between the woodblock and guiro. As the piece moves on, these rhythms become more complex and involved with each other.
