Description

Blur by Cesar Gonzalez is a med-advanced percussion ensemble piece, featuring a large sound palette and an exciting, driving rhythmic force. As the title suggests, the texture of the piece moves from thin and transparent to thick and blurred, with many different instruments playing their independent lines simultaneously. In addition to standard percussion instruments and techniques, Blur calls for an array of auxiliary instruments and extended techniques, adding to the variety of sound colors Gonzales achieves.

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

Instrumentation

Crotales (low octave)

Glockenspiel

Xylophone

Chimes

2 vibraphones

1 marimbas—(1) low A, (1) low C

4 timpani

Drums (high bongo, kick drum, bass drum)

Cymbals & gongs (low sizzle cymbal, 3 suspended cymbals, large China cymbal, medium China cymbal, ride cymbal, tam-tam)

Accessories (2 mark trees, 2 sets of finger cymbals, bell tree, 2 rainsticks, shaker, 2 egg shakers, triangle, slapstick, ice bell)
