Detailed Description

Festival of the New Sun (for percussion ensemble). Composed by Alan Keown. For percussion ensemble (6 players: snare drum, 2 high toms, 2 low toms, piccolo snare drum, 4 timpani, finger cymbals, 2 cowbells, tambourine, temple blocks, suspended cymbal). Medium-easy. Folio and parts on CD-ROM. 10 pages. Duration 3'20". Published by Tapspace Publications (TA.TSPCE-65).

Written for six players, this easier/intermediate ensemble for drums and percussion allows each player to contribute to the overall ensemble. It uses only standard, common instrumentation and no mallet instruments are required.

Opening with a distant and repetitive snare motive, players layer in one-by-one, building to a driving and groovy piece which never relents. Players are featured through solo and duet phrases, and dramatic dynamics are used to give the piece a relentless sense of motion throughout.

This piece comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-Rom containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.
