Description

In Black Racer, Brian Blume has crafted an effective piece for intermediate percussion quartets to hone their chamber ensemble skills while communicating intensity and musical sensitivity. Each player has a small multipercussion setup using common instruments found in most high school music programs—a large tom-tom and different sized cymbals. In addition to a set of temple blocks and bongos, two glockenspiels are required on opposite ends of the setup, creating a canonical, antiphonal effect that contrasts the intensity of the non-pitched instruments.

Use of this product is governed by the license terms outlined here.

Instrumentation

  • 2 glockenspiels
  • Bongos (with sticks)
  • Temple blocks
  • Cymbals (small & large splash cymbals, small & large suspended cymbals)
