Description

Eight on 3 and Nine on 2 is a multipercussion duet like no other. Written for eight pitched tom toms, 2 rototoms, 2 bongos, and a bass drum, this piece tests percussionists'’ abilities to “split” rhythms. Two players perform the piece facing each other, sharing instruments just as they share in playing almost every rhythm in the piece. The listener is engaged aurally and visually as both performers sound like one in an exciting and captivating percussive showcase.

Written in 2007 for George Clements'’ senior recital at the Eastman School of Music, the piece'’s unique name comes from unique experience. Robert Marino played 3rd bass drum for the Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps’ eighth DCI World Championship in 2000, and George played 2nd bass drum in the Cadets for their ninth DCI World Championship in 2005. The piece was written with the goal of combining drum corps elements into a formal recital piece that would challenge any percussionist, regardless of his or her level of experience.

This piece comes as a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing a live video recording (featuring Robert Marino and George Clements) and all individual parts available for printing.

Instrumentation

  • 8 pitched tom toms
  • 2 roto toms
  • 1 set of bongos
  • 1 kick drum
