Description

Daniel Montoya Jr.’s Mayhem is an ode to his newborn baby girl. Composed as an "alternative" to the common lullaby-style pieces composers often conjure up for their children, this medium work for large percussion ensemble lovingly kicks at you right from the start. It centers around a rhythmical theme based on his daughter’s name: “Mara, Mara Mayhem.”

While remaining accessible to developing performers, Mayhem navigates many different time signatures while retaining a strong sense of groove throughout. A catchy melody and occasional backbeat give the listener a sense of stability in between kicking sessions!

Mayhem was commisioned by Megan Wike & Ridgeview Middle School (Round Rock, TX), in honor of their 2016 performance at The Midwest Band & Orchestra Clinic in Chicago, Illinois.

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