Description

Breakdown, by Bradley Slayter, is a percussion quartet that is all about the groove. Scored for concert battery “plus”, this rocking piece will engage performers and audiences with rhythmic fervor.

Breakdown is composed largely of interlocking parts in 7/8 and 4/4 and requires a high level of listening and interplay between the players. The resulting energy will naturally help bind it together so as not to literally “break down.” It will make for a fun challenge to intermediate players as they learn about how to groove in a small ensemble setting…even in 7/8!

This piece comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.

If you’re looking for a mid-concert “pick me up,” get down with some Breakdown!

Instrumentation

  • Drumset (kick, snare, 2 rack toms, floor tom, hihat, crash cymbal)
  • Drums (6 concert toms, bongos, concert bass drum)
  • Cymbals (hihat, ride cymbal, 2 china cymbals, 2 splash cymbals, 2 Zil-bels)
  • Accessories (tambourine, ribbon crasher, 2 brake drums)
