Marching Band Show
KarmeN: This new marching band show, entitled KarmeN, included musical selections of Georges Bizet’s Carmen, Adele’s Million Years Ago, and Ernesto Lecuona’s Malaguena.
Indoor Percussion Show
Tinged With Nuance: What began as an arrangement of one of my favorite rap/hip hop songs, resulted in an explosion of sounds, rhythms, key changes, grooves, and rudimental “licks,” being tossed around the ensemble. You can hear the tonalities shift gradually and quickly at different times. Lots of virtuosic mallet runs and drum solos are prevalent throughout. This composition was written to be used in indoor percussion competition. Tinged With Nuance was the 2018 indoor show for John F. Kennedy High School in La Palma, CA.
The 17 different percussion parts included are: Glockenspiel, Crotales, Chimes, Xylophone, Vibraphone, Marimba, Electric Piano, Synthesizer, Electric Bass, Timpani, Percussion/Accessories, Cymbals, Drumset, Snareline, Tenorline, Bassline, and Tom Line. If you need anything adjusted/arranged to fit your exact ensemble, please let me know how I might accommodate. Extra charges for this might apply.
Pursual For Asylum: Pursual For Asylum is a 10 piece percussion ensemble composition that includes the instrumentation of: Glockenspiel, Chimes, Vibraphone (2), Marimba (2), Timpani, Snare Drum, Concert Bass Drum, and Percussion. The mood of this piece makes you wonder if and when you might find safety and solace, amidst a dark and dangerous night. Will you prevail and beat evil? This composition was written about the exploration of good and evil, to see who might win. Listen to find out!
In The Twilight: In The Twilight is a glockenspiel solo, utilizing two glockenspiels, where the right glock is placed in front of and to the right of the left glock. This positioning makes it easier to play this piece with its dissonant harmonies, melodic juxtaposition, and muffling technique. This solo is a great piece for a solo competition, will stand out from other compositions, and will be a fun challenge, both rhythmically and melodically.
Thank you for your interest and support!
