Description

Always leave ‘em wanting more. Calvin Warren III’s Truncated does just this! Short, aggressive, and to the point, this percussive tour de force serves up a delicious “note sandwich” for three hungry players looking to showcase their individual and collective abilities.

Features of the work include continual “over the bar” sounding phrases, layers of three-, four-, and five-note groupings superimposed on one another, split parts (à la tonal marching bass lines), short solos, and interesting metric modulations. A groove is maintained more or less throughout, keeping the sum total of the parts listenable and even toe tappable!

At just two minutes in length and with a relatively minimal setup around a shared kick drum, the piece offers a great opportunity to wow the audience and leave them wanting more.

Truncated ships as a fully bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for either printing or tablet viewing.

Instrumentation

Drums — bongos, toms (7), mounted kick drum (shared by all players), snare drum

Cymbals & gongs — hi-hat, 1 large China cymbal, 2 medium China cymbals, sizzle cymbal, 2 splash cymbals

Accessories — cowbell, mark tree, triangle
