ABOUT THE PIECE:
Commissioned by Mr. Kevin Cato and written for Mt. Eden High School in the Fall of 2011 by Brian Aguilar, this high-energy and dissonant piece was written specifically for use as a street percussion piece. The use of octatonic scales creates a sense of tension and anticipation throughout. The piece is further fueled by the 172 b.p.m. tempo marking. High energy, aggressive, and fun!
TENORS (quints with optional quad part)
BASS DRUMS (5 tonal drums with optional 4 bass part)
