    Program Notes
    The word “funk” has been applied to many different types of music. Funk music often de-emphasizes melody and harmony by bringing rhythm to the foreground, where intricate rhythmic patterns are layered together to create an intense, hard-driving groove. However, the “funk” label has also been applied to music with a more relaxing, mellow groove. Funk Infusion takes both of these contrasting styles and “fuses” them together, creating a piece which has the best of both worlds. The beginning section provides a straight-ahead groove while the contrasting middle section has a more relaxed 12/8 “half-time” feel. The mellow groove slowly builds to a climax, then transitions back into the original groove. Whether you prefer your funk hard-driving or laid back, this composition will have the players and the audience “feelin’ the funk” in no time.

    The EDGE Series is a collection of percussion ensembles featuring many popular musical styles – 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.
