Description

Brian Blume’s rousing snare solo with audio accompaniment Kids These Days... was inspired by his young children and the toys they enjoy playing with. The sounds some of these toys make were recorded by Blume and ingeniously cut, spliced, and manipulated and ultimately became the audio accompaniment. These sounds are used to help create the sudden shifts in the music, much like a child’s attention suddenly shifts when playing. The overall effect of the piece is a wild and high-spirited ride that will definitely win over any crowd at a performance.

Kids These Days... includes the audio accompaniment tracks as well a full reference recording of the piece.

Instrumentation

Concert snare drum (sticks/brushes)

Amplification system (for included audio accompaniment)
