When I joined this forum community, it was the first time I had EVER been a part of a forum community. I made the mistake in posting ALL of the pieces I've ever written at one time, which Mr. David Sosnowski kindly pointed out wasn't a good idea. So, I present to you, a piece I wrote a few months ago called, "Rush."
Tell me what you guys think... it's one of my earlier works of year... I hope you guys enjoy, it hypes me up... but that may be because I really like percussion stuff... =]
Well done! At such a young age you have a good sense of putting various instruments together without overdoing it and connecting them quite well together. Depending on what you would use this for, I find the intro a bit long as it gives me the impression that it is about drumming only. If there were a video or film with the music I would not have this problem, but just by itself, I do.
I had listened to Rush before but ran out of time with the others as you had many songs posted. One at a time is better.
Eons ago when I was at university, we had an all
percussion group, run mostly if I recall by Tom
Wubbenhorst and Bill Lampe... both talented and
innovative writers. They'd use literally anything
they could lay their hands on -- oil barrels, brake
drums, anvils, chunks of I-beams, strings of soda
can pop-tops, you name it, if it made a noise...
they'd write for it. And some of the pieces were
really quite something to hear!
Now, lest you think I'm just an old geezer rambling
aimlessly (well, I am, but most people forgive me
for it) -- there's actually a point to the story.
This and other work I've heard from you point to
a fascination for and real gift with percussion.
Perhaps you might consider putting together your
own ensemble group along the lines I outlined
And please, call me David. Mr. Sosnowski was
my father, and in his current lack of incarnation,
I doubt he'd respond if so addressed... rofl.
Excellent rhythms going on in this piece. Excellent percussion writing and full of energy. I agree with Reegs that Drumlines would like this. I can't wait to see what you can do with the Marching Band library. Keep on doing what you are doing.
