Description

Hang onto your hats and glasses! This exercise in timing and independence for the advanced battery ensemble will test the mind and the ears, as well as just downright make some folks uncomfortable. Flash Gordon Henderson is the latest concoction by Murray Gusseck and was heard throughout 2009 in DCI warmup areas around the country.

It works the timing and independence concepts by way of the players themselves providing their own metronome—a quarter note in one hand while slaloming a series of rhythmic twists and turns with the other. Designed by Murray to be a cool and interesting way of working basic rhythmic independence concepts, the end result for the battery section is anything but basic. Parents with small children beware!

This piece comes as a professionally printed and bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.

Instrumentation

  • Marching snare drums
  • Marching tenors
  • Marching bass drums (5)

This 60-second warmup was heard played by the Santa Clara Vanguard drumline in 2002 written by David Reeves as a tribute to drum corps icon Ralph Hardimon, who shaped much of what people know today as the SCV percussion sound. Ralph Speak is a rhythmically complex piece which requires both chops and finesse to perform. For drumlines with brains and brawn, this piece is sure to lay it on the line!
