Description

from Dictionary.com:


pal·in·drome [pal-in-drohm]

–noun

1. a word, line, verse, number, sentence, etc., reading the same backward as forward, as Madam, I'm Adam or Poor Dan is in a droop.


Palindrome was born in the Tapspace booth at the Chicago Midwest Clinic and Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) trade show in December, 2010 and February, 2011 respectively. In between VDL demos, veteran Tapspacers Jim Casella, Murray Gusseck, Bryan Harmsen, and Bill Castillo slowly chipped away at a compositional idea based loosely around the idea of a "rhythmic palindrome" in 23/16 time.


The piece quickly turned into quite the challenging etude for the experienced marching battery ensemble. Lots of rhythmic twists and turns (and no shortage of polyrhythmic grooves) make this a fresh new addition to the Tapspace library of battery etudes!


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). Both versions also include an informational Read Me file, and an audio recording of the piece. For more details on legal usage of downloadable sheet music from Tapspace, click here.
