Hieroglyphics

$40.00

Hieroglyphics is meant to free the imagination; take it to an otherworldly place, a place of epic battles and glorious adventure many centuries ago. The ancients passed on their stories to us through the paintings on cave walls, in ancient tombs and temples. It is through this language that we have come to understand humankind's past, this time through the power of music.

This work for a percussion ensemble of 11+ players (the more doubling the better) contains parts designed for both the amateur (parts for triangle, tambourine and cabasa) as well as more experienced percussionists (timpani and keyboard percussion) to accommodate the varied skill level among players within the typical percussion ensemble. The timpanist is required to make several quick tuning changes, the keyboard parts have several key changes and exotic scales to explore, and the unpitched percussion parts require keen attention to rhythm and dynamics.
