For Timps and Tape

For Timps and Tape is a solo work for 5 Timpani with tape (well, its on a CD!)  accompaniment.
The full score shows the rhythms of the accompanying part (and some indication of the types of sound) Also included is a CD and solo Timp part.

I was trying to create a work for solo Timpani which an Audience might actually enjoy listening to.  (If I failed I’m certainly not alone and just hope I’m not the worst offender).

 

I suggest setting it up like this:

Another option with this piece is to have someone make an interpretation of the tape part (on drum set or maybe an electric drum set) and perform it as a duo.

I’ve got plans for my own video of this one, but until I get round to it check this out!
