Roger Carter’s Vortex is here.

Just in time for the wrap-up of the 2014 DCI season, we’re very proud to welcome Roger Carter to our family of artists with his intricate battery piece Vortex, as heard performed by the 2014 Bluecoats drumline. Vortex is an aggressive marching percussion piece rife with challenging polyrhythmic ideas through a constant 12/8 meter. Extended grooves, sectional breakdowns, and dense, rudimental rhythms that laugh in the face of silly barlines, there’s no escaping this Vortex.

Echo Song

ECHO SONG
for solo multipercussion with optional assistant

by Gene Koshinski

The simultaneous performance unrelated meters, ostinati, and melodic material drives Gene Koshinski‘s solo for multipercussionist and optional, echoing assistant. 


Chatterbox

 

CHATTERBOX
for solo hand percussion
by Chad Floyd

Chad Floyd‘s sneaky cool solo for hand drums utilizes a cajon along with a set of bongos and congas to create sophisticated grooves and textures.

 

 


Alter Ego

ALTER EGO
for solo snare drum with audio soundscape
by Pat Jacobs

This unique take on a snare solo by Pat Jacobs utilizes an audio soundscape created only from morphed sounds of an actual snare drum. This piece won first place in the 40th Annual PAS Composition Contest.


Mood for a Day

MOOD FOR A DAY
for solo marimba
by Steve Howe; arranged by Rick Dior

Prog-rock band Yes member Steve Howe’s famous flamenco-style guitar solo adapts beautifully to the marimba in Rick Dior‘s excellent arrangement.

 


Constructive Interference

CONSTRUCTIVE INTERFERENCE
for solo multipercussion
by Alan Keown

Two waves will become one stronger wave if they meet at the right point. There are many right points in Alan Keown‘s expressive solo for multipercussion.

"Here's an idea. Take one of the best drumlines on the planet and build a sample library around them. This package is the creation of Jim Casella, one of the most respected leaders in the drumline community, so you know that the product is going to be first-rate...This package is complete with all the bells and whistles that make the special sounds and playing techniques of the drumline such an exciting sonic exploration. Did they leave anything out? I don't think so...This is an outstanding tool for anyone who writes or arranges music for drumline at any level – high school, college, or championship competitions."
