Description

Tink by Alan Keown was written for small instruments to be played with tiny implements giving it a light but tasteful sound pallete. Some sections of the piece are groove-oriented, while others are made to imitate the style of the contemporary composer, Paul Lansky. The instrumentation includes some found objects, like glass bottles, and instruments from different cultures like Japanese woodblocks, Chinese opera gongs, and nipple gongs.

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





Performed by the Portland Percussion Group.

Instrumentation

  • Bongos (1 set)
  • Timbales (1 set)
  • 2 small China cymbals (high & low)
  • 4 small nipple gongs (2 high, 2 low)*
  • 2 opera gongs (high & low)*
  • Brake drum (slightly muffled)
  • 3 very small woodblocks (high, medium, low)
  • 2 glass bottles (high & low)



*Possible substitutions:

  • Tin cans instead of nipple gongs
  • Stainless steel mixing bowls rather than opera gongs
