East Meets West

$26.00

This composition was originally written after a trip out west. Unfortunately, as I composed the battery I could not get the sound I needed with hand drums. So we now have a mixture of instruments from all over the world. There are instruments suggested that could be substituted with others, such as the taiko drums with marching drums or toms of different pitches. There are two parts written for the upper voice. One is the skauhachi (flute), the other is xylophone. I feel that both sound exceptional well together. This piece has everything that a band or percussion director could want in a concert percussion feature. All the parts are interesting and tailored to the technical abilities of the younger and older players.
