Description

Taking its aesthetic cue from Taiko and Kyoto style drumming by using “floating” arm motions, Steven Wulff’s Taiko à la Tom-tom features four percussionists, each with a single tom. The musical material of the piece consists of quarter, eighth, and sixteenth-note motives which are passed around the ensemble. This gives the performers a perfect first-time exposure to chamber music, where they will develop their listening and responding skills.

Taiko à la Tom-tom comes as a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing individual parts for all three accompaniment options and a recording. 

Instrumentation

4 graduated concert toms
