Description

Clangor by Wesley Denkins is a work for eight beginning to intermediate level percussionists. Using graduated drums and resonant metals, the players layer simple rhythms and accents individually and in subgroups to render an energetic dialogue reminiscent of a train yard or industrial workshop.

Each player alternates between a drum and a metal object, reinforcing the concept of a multi-percussion setup. While much of the work is played in unison, there are moments where each performer must play their own unique role in the rhythmic conversation.

The composer offers suggestions for drum and metallic selection as well as ways in which to add some visual flair. The piece is also scored to be playable with just four players.

Clangor ships as a fully bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for either printing or tablet viewing.

Instrumentation

8 graduated drums

8 graduated resonant metals (with matching/similar timbre)
