  • Kaleidoscope | Gary Kettel

    £50.00

    This is a highly original piece of music for Flute (also Alto Flute and Piccolo) and four percussionists. The word ‘kaleidoscope’ means ‘observer of beautiful forms’, and this piece of six movements, opens with ‘Jumble’ representing the chaotic fragments of colour seen when first looking into a kaleidoscope.
    As a kaleidoscope is rotated, the vivid pattern of colours changes, creating another distinctly different image. These changing patterns are represented in this piece by three ‘Revolves’, each with a distinctly different musical mood and style.
    The Revolves are interspersed with two romantic interludes, representing the visually exquisite images the Kaleidoscope creates

  • Locomotion | Kevin Bell

    £14.99

    An intermediate piece using some of the main instruments from the percussion section that most bands would have, namely – Drum kit, 2 Timpani, 3 Toms (or Rototoms ) and a few common auxiliary percussion instruments.
    Locomotion was inspired by sounds heard while travelling on a train. Using various instruments to convey trains coming from the distance, going through tunnels, freight trains thundering by, and a general sense of moving along – use your imagination to work out which sounds represent what!

    Players: 5

  • Lullaby for Barnaby | Colin Shaw

    £14.99

    This is a piece for 6 players of higher intermediate level.
    The title is derogatory – written when Colin's son was keeping him awake when he was a baby!
    Counting is very important for all parts, especially as the 6/8 time signature at the beginning is disrupted by hemiolas.
    The tin bath is optional. A tray will have the same musical effect, but the drama of a performance of Lullaby for Barnaby makes this an experience to remember.

    Players: 1: Floor Tom, Cowbell
    2: Clash Cymbal, Triangle, Concert Toms
    3: Small Tom, Large Tom
    4: Tambourine, Bucket of Gravel
    5. Snare Drum, Woodblock
    6: 2 Susp. Cymbals
    Duration: 4 55″
