Winner of the 2013 PAS Marching Percussion Composition Contest, Machine is a gripping, electrically-charged, prog metal-inspired onslaught of notes for the experienced battery ensemble.

If you’re looking for a fresh new way to showcase your battery ensemble chops, here you go!

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)
