Description

Written for and dedicated to the 2021 Bluecoats drumline, Roger Carter’s groove-filled piece Syvåtte (pronounced “Seev-OTT-uh”) is inspired by the tune Alfonso Muskedunder by the Norwegian DJ Todd Terje. The title Syvåtte is a combination of the two Norwegian words for seven (syv) and eight (åtte), which is in reference to the driving and incessant 7/8 time signature used for most of the piece. Throughout this work, Roger explores different feels within this 7/8 time signature to create new and intriguing rhythmic textures. There’s also a host of hybrid rudiments and irregular rhythms that will challenge the most skilled contemporary rudimental players.

If your advanced-level drumline needs to work on its groove and feel in 7/8, this could be what you are looking for. It incorporates well-balanced features for all three sections and encourages players to go from paradiddle rudiments to singles to more isolated punctuations interchangeably.

Overall, “Syvåtte” has a lot of energy while avoiding the over-the-top bombastic nature of many in-the-lot warmup-style pieces. A word of caution: it was written for the 2021 Bluecoats drumline and requires that level of ensemble skill to achieve a high-quality performance.
