Description

Daniel Montoya Jr.’s piece Max Power gets its name from the "Homer to the Max" episode of the infamous TV show The Simpsons. Montoya was inspired by a James Bond type character that Homer adopts as a way of life in the episode.

Using a full complement of pitched and unpitched percussion instruments, the piece teases elements of both James Bond and Simpsons themes throughout. To generate the work’s power and groove, six auxiliary players fill out and punctuate the themes using impact drums, brake drums, a collection of cymbals, toms, and a concert bass drum. The result is a groovy, punchy amalgamation of two of our beloved entertainment icons—Homer Simpson and James Bond. 

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