Description

Written for and dedicated to the 2021 Bluecoats drumline, Roger Carter’s groove-filled piece Syvåtte (pronounced “Seev-OTT-uh”) is inspired by the tune Alfonso Muskedunder by the Norwegian DJ Todd Terje. The title Syvåtte is a combination of the two Norwegian words for seven (syv) and eight (åtte), which is in reference to the driving and incessant 7/8 time signature used for most of the piece. Throughout this work, Roger explores different feels within this 7/8 time signature to create new and intriguing rhythmic textures. There’s also a host of hybrid rudiments and irregular rhythms that will challenge the most skilled contemporary rudimental players.

Syvåtte 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 (sextets)

• Marching bass drums (5)

• Drumset (optional) (hi-hat, kick drum, floor tom, snare drum, high tom, ride cymbal, crash cymbal)
