Description

As heard performed in the lot by the Bluecoats drumline, Roger Carter’s Vortex is an aggressive marching percussion piece rife with challenging polyrhythmic ideas through a constant 12/8 meter. With extended grooves, sectional breakdowns, and dense, rudimental rhythms that laugh in the face of silly barlines, there’s no escaping this Vortex.

 

This piece is available as a Single User part (one part, no score, licensed to one user), or an Ensemble Set (score, parts, licensed for one ensemble to perform). For more details on legal usage of downloadable sheet music from Tapspace, click here.

 

 

Instrumentation

  • Marching snare drums
  • Marching tenors

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!
