Description

Dustin Schulze’s large ensemble piece Lucid Mantra centers around a continuous 16th-note groove started by the marimbas and subsequently carried throughout the ensemble. Schulze sought to create a jazz/funk inspired piece and, in his own words, the piece has a “highly syncopated texture, while still maintaining a deep pocket.” He achieves this jazz/funk feel brilliantly through an intriguingly syncopated melody, played by the crotales, glockenspiel, and vibraphones. In addition to rhythm section elements of bass and piano, the drumset part stands out as a featured voice. This part, in particular, requires a player with finesse and mastery of the instrument.

Lucid Mantra comes as a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing individual parts for printing as well as a full audio recording.

Instrumentation

• Crotales (2 octaves)

Glockenspiel

Chimes

3 vibraphones

4 marimbas—(3) 4-octave, (1) low A

Piano

Drums (drum set (kick, snare, rack tom, floor tom), djembe, cajón)

Cymbals & gongs (drum set (hi-hat, ride, crash, (2) splashes), sizzle cymbal)

Accessories (triangle, shaker, shekere)
