Description

Shock and Awe, by Jamieson Carr, is a bold ensemble work for the intermediate-to-advanced group that features a vast array of percussion instruments to create dissonant, exciting textures right out of the gate. 

 

From the words of the composer regarding the inspiration for the title, “The basis of this idea was to use overwhelming power, dominant battlefield maneuvers, and spectacular displays of force to paralyze an enemy and destroy their will to fight. This militaristic term is the inspiration for the piece.”

 

When it’s time to engage your audience, elevate some heart rates, and unleash the fury that only full-sized percussion ensembles can, Shock and Awe will deliver.

 

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