For Percussion Ensemble
The intent of this series “ Playing together “ is to offer some ideas and structures, which can be creatively used by the musicians, to play and compose together.
Each composition consists of different themes, structures, possible voicing and accompaniment patterns, and possible scales for improvisation, chords and rhythmic figures. This material can used randomly with the aim to create a beautiful structural song, with melodic and / or rhythmic solos and improvisations, with opportunities for all levels. Try as soon as possible to play by heart, this will improve the interaction.
