Description

Technology by Jim Casella is written for eight percussionists of intermediate to beginning skill levels. Some parts are written to feature more advanced players (snare, toms, timpani), while other parts are more elementary for less experienced players. Based on a "techno" groove, this piece is sure to be a hit among high school percussion ensembles and audiences alike!

This piece comes as a professionally printed and bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.

Instrumentation

  • Glockenspiel
  • Xylophone
  • 3 timpani
  • Drums (snare drum, 4 tom toms, 2 additional toms, bass drum)
  • Cymbals (hi-hat, suspended cymbal, ride cymbal)
  • Accessories (triangle, temple blocks, small shaker)

Reviews

This ensemble for eight percussionists is written in a rhythmic groove found in much pop music of the '90s.  It only takes about four minutes to perform, yet each member of the ensemble plays important solos or motive patterns.  The two keyboard parts are written for bells and xylophone, but each player also doubles on tom-toms.  Drum textures include snare drum, four toms, three timpani, and muffled bass drum.  Additional colors include triangle, cymbals, hi-hat, and temple blocks. 

The piece opens with a solo introduction on closed hi-hat, and the hi-hat is the core throughout the piece.  The rest of the piece consists of solo breaks by the players, who react to motives or ideas from each other.  This is definitely written for young players, but the rhythmic drive and patterns will be of value to more advanced players as well.
