Description

Russell Wharton was inspired to compose Deus Ex Metronome by a device ubiquitous and invaluable to the journey of many musicians – the BOSS DB-90 Dr. Beat Metronome. This solo incorporates an audio accompaniment created solely from samples recorded (and liberally manipulated) from the DB-90. 

This intricate accompaniment lays the groundwork for a complex array of rhythms and textures from the soloist. Musical influences are derived from pianist and composer Tigran Hamasyan, jazz drummer Mark Guiliana, and the indelible rapper Kendrick Lamar. In this melting pot of artistry and technique, Wharton has created a composition that is truly singular and unique.

Instrumentation

Concert snare drum (sticks/brushes)

Amplification system (for included audio accompaniment)
