Description

Zero-G is a relentless lot jam that has no chill! Debuted by the Bluecoats drumline in the summer of 2017, Roger Carter's advanced rhythmic language is on full display. This entire work is based on a simple syncopated theme in 5/4 where the beat is obscured by a single 16th-note rest, giving the listener multiple interpretations of the pulse. This theme goes through many transformations, adding diddles, singles, flams, and even a solo section to feature a different player in the line on each performance. With more notes-per-square inch than anything you've likely attempted before, this one will require focused commitment. No FOMO, bro!

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

Check out the 2018 Bluecoats drumline throwing down on this beastly lot jam!

Instrumentation

  • Marching snare drums
  • Marching tenors (6)
  • Marching bass drums (5)
