THANK YOU (____)
Thank you (____) was written for Tom Sherwood and his 2012 Modern Snare Drum Competition. No drumsticks are used to play the piece. Instead, mallets, rattan shafts, brushes, fingers and coins are used along with the performers voice. The piece was written as a thank you letter of sorts to my favorite snare drummer and each performance is a thank you letter of sorts to the performers favorite snare drummer. It is written in 5 pages that are distinct yet connected.
"Thank you Tom Sherwood for asking me to be a part of this project and for supporting the direction I went with the piece.
Performed by Mobius Percussion
