Program Notes The Full Meda is all about groove and energy. Time is very important as the source for the energy, so be specific in keeping it. Set-up is most conducive to establishing groove when "rhythm" instruments are placed near each other. Additionally, place Vibes 1 and Marimba 1 at the front, as they are playing the melody line back and forth. Make sure they can be heard over the rest of the ensemble. Part of The EDGE Series.
The EDGE Series is a collection of percussion ensembles featuring many popular musical styles Ð from funk to calypso to techno. It was developed to excite a wider range of ensembles, directors, and audiences while retaining the level of integrity you have grown to expect from C. Alan Publications.
