Description

Written to depict the construction of a skyscraper, High Rise by John Paul Chapman uses elements of blues, jazz, & contemporary classical music to invoke an urban imagery. In addition to standard percussion instruments like marimba, timpani, toms, & vibraphone, this piece includes a host of “found” percussion instruments like glass plates, metal pipes, wine glasses, and brake drums.

Each performer in this advanced 8-player ensemble has a multipercussion setup comprised of a pitched mallet instrument along with a variety of non-pitched percussion instruments. High Rise is a whirlwind of a piece, guaranteed to engage performers as well as listeners.

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