  • Notes & Instrumentation

    The Line Around Us is a sextet that explores an extreme membranophone range, accented by the use of cymbals. The work helps performers strengthen ensemble awareness, work on polyrhythmic figures, and develop dynamic sensitivity.

    Genre: Percussion Ensemble | # of Players: 6
    Level: Medium | Duration: 3:20

    Instrumentation
    Percussion 1 (Bongos, Cymbal*)
    Percussion 2 (2 Congas, Cymbal*)
    Percussion 3 (2 Roto-Toms or TImbales, Cymbal*)
    Percussion 4 (3 High Toms, Cymbal*)
    Percussion 5 (3 Low Toms, Cymbal*)
    Percussion 6 (4 Timpani)

    *Cymbals should be graduated in size from medium to large (ideally between 17” and 20”). Players should use cymbals that complement each other’s sound without being too similar.

    Program Notes
    The Line Around Us is the second in my "Singular Series", a collection of percussion ensemble works that feature limited instrumentation. "The Singular Series" explores the range of textures and timbres made possible by simple set-ups. The Line Around Us is a sextet that explores an extreme membranophone range, accented by the use of cymbals. The primary motive is introduced immediately, and provides the thematic material used throughout the piece. While the structure of the piece allows every player an opportunity to perform in a solo setting, the parts allow for including players of varying ability levels. Pedagogically, The Line Around Us helps performers strengthen ensemble awareness, work on polyrhythmic figures, and develop dynamic sensitivity.
