Stormbreak (for percussion octet (and optional wind ensemble)). By Jim Casella. Percussion Ensemble & Optional Wind Ensemble. For glockenspiel, xylophone, chimes, 4 timpani, bongos, congas, rainstick, vibra slap, suspended cymbal, woodblock, finger cymbal, snare drum, brake drum, hihat, ocean drum, 4 concert toms, cowbell, shaker, splash cymbal, china cymbal, tambourine, triangle, b (8 players). Medium-Easy. Score and parts on CD-ROM. 32 pages. Duration 3'30". Published by Tapspace Publications (TA.TSPCE-33).

Stormbreak was written by Jim Casella for young/intermediate ensembles as a sort of sequel to Technology - another moderately simple piece for percussion octet by Casella that has since become quite popular. Opening with nature-effect sounds, the storm breaks into a rhythmic "tip of the hat" to Technology on the rim of the snare drum. As rhythmic layers add in, the syncopated motive of Stormbreak becomes clear and continues to drive the piece throughout. Certain parts can be more challenging than others, and syncopation is above the average beginner level. However, numerous repeat bars are used, as the primary goal is to develop players' ability to understand how their parts "groove" and interact within the mix of their fellow groove-playing compadres. For more advanced players in the ensemble, solo sections are included which feature timpani, snare drum, and concert toms. Stormbreak can stand alone as a percussion octet, but it also comes with the option of being played by a full wind ensemble. During wind ensemble concerts, the percussion section can sometimes be relegated to the back. So this option acts as something of a percussion ensemble "feature" that can be programmed into wind ensemble concerts. This piece comes with a full, bound folio containing a full score with wind ensemble, and a separate score for percussion ensemble only. Also included is a CD-Rom containing reference audio recordings and all individual parts available for printing.
