Description

Written for two multipercussion stations configured in mirror image and split by a shared bass drum, Double Take by Jamieson Carr launches at a blistering speed for nearly 7 minutes of exciting counterpoint. Each player rides a steady, aggressive ostinato on the rim of the snare drum. Sparse interjections occur on bongos, woodblocks, cowbells, splash cymbals, and ascending opera gongs. These gradually increase in frequency while a steady groove ensues.

From the urgent downbeat through the final climax, Double Take will capture an audience’s excitement while providing a perfect vehicle to feature a pair of aggressive percussionists.

Instrumentation

  • Drums (concert bass drum, 2 concert snare drums, 2 sets of bongos)
  • Cymbals & gongs (2 splash cymbals, 2 opera gongs)
  • Accessories (2 woodblock or jam blocks, 2 cowbells)
