Description

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. Jon Weber (Instructor of Percussion at MSU College of Music and 1992 SCV snareline alum) boldly explores theme and variation through some very powerful motifs in 5/4 time while keeping a solid, grounded groove that does not get lost in the chaos.

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)
  • Marching cymbals
