Description

Perpetuo, as the title suggests, is largely comprised of driving 16th-note figures that cohere from player to player, creating the feeling of constant motion. Thomas R. Marceau wrote this piece for young percussionists who have some years of battery experience but very little mallet keyboard experience. Hence, each player has a limited number of pitches in their respective parts so they can focus on the rhythmic complexity of their music. In addition to a keyboard instrument, each player has 2 boomwhackers and a tom-tom which make the piece fun to learn and fun to watch!

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

Instrumentation

Xylophone

Vibraphone

1-2 marimbas*—(1) 4-octave, (1) low A or low F

Drums (4 tom-toms)

Accessories (8 boomwhackers: (middle C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C)

*Both marimbists may share an instrument if necessary. The Marimba 2 part contains optional notes for a 4.5-octave (low F) instrument if available.
