All Aboard | Kevin Bell£14.99
The good old days of the steam train are brought to life in this small ensemble piece, featuring four percussionists, with two performing on brushes.
‘All Aboard!’ begins with the brushes creating the sound effect of steam, followed by the conductors whistle and a shout of “all aboard”. The piece takes us on a steam train journey using rhythms from the brushes, and drum kit supported by a driving bass line. Using tempo changes and rhythmic patterns to challenge any percussion ensemble with something a bit different.
A good sound and visual programme show piece.
