Description

Wood & Water by Anthony Di Sanza is a refreshing piece written for frame drum that can be performed as a duet with two frame drums or as a solo with audio track accompaniment. The piece offers performers the chance to explore the many possibilities of this ancient instrument that is underrepresented in the traditional percussion world. The continual dialogue between the two players (or between the player and audio track in the solo version) is at the foundation for the creative exploration of the instrument. A variety of techniques are explored that create intrigue between the parts. The piece explores three thematic elements that are interconnected mathematically but each have their own distinct flavors. Each theme has a shared tempo, but the pace and placement of the beat is altered based on time signature and metric modulations. Wood & Water is an intricate work that is a wonderful opportunity to explore an age-old instrument with roots from all over the world.

Wood & Water ships as a printed, professionally bound score and includes downloadable links to the audio accompaniment.

Instrumentation

2 Frame drums (any type) 

or solo frame drum and audio playback
