Description

Sweep Dreams by Danny Raymond offers a unique opportunity for beginning-to-intermediate musicians to perform on non-standard instruments, such as plastic buckets, brooms, spray bottles used as shakers, and plastic trash cans. These items are utilized to discover a wide variety of sounds and to create a groovy and fun musical experience. Players are also encouraged to “play-act” and incorporate elements of theater throughout their performance.

Ideally, the ensemble will feature 10 players with the following instrumentation and personnel: 2 broom players, 1 shaker bottle player, 1 dust pan player, 4 bucket players, and 2 rubber trash can players (with 4 cans). However, this piece can be performed with 7 players at a minimum: 2 broom players, 1 shaker bottle player, 1 dust pan player, 2 bucket players, and 1 rubber trash can player.


With a modest setup and a novelty aesthetic, Sweep Dreams would be a crowd-pleasing and educational addition to any concert!
