Performed by the ImPromp2 Percussion Duo: Matt Tidwell and Drew Daniels
Published by C. Alan Publications (www.c-alanpublications.com)
A challenging duet for two multi-percussionists with nearly identical set-ups, Surface Tension travels through many styles: hip-hop, rock, jazz waltz, and back again. As with his other compositions, Hollinden uses metric modulations for transitioning smoothly from section to section. Requires nimble hands on the part of both performers.
Percussion 1 (4 toms, snare drum, tambourine, cowbell, woodblock, hi-hat, crash cymbal, Chinese cymbal)
Percussion 2 (3 toms, snare drum, bongos, cowbell, temple block, ride cymbal, crash cymbal)
