Pat Jacobs: Alter Ego
Percussion with cd
concert snare drum (with wire snares) to be played with sticks and wire brushes. Also, an audio PA system will be required for the audio soundscape track(s) per the included audio playback options.
Stretched, warped, distorted, de-tuned, and mangled. Such was the fate of the recordings composer Pat Jacobs made using only a snare drum in order to create the fresh and energetic soundscape that complements the solo snare drum in this unique piece. Listeners will surely enjoy the high-energy result of the interplay between the soloist and soundscape's echoing, mocking, and battling alter ego. Medium-advanced in level, this powerful showpiece won first place in the Percussive Arts Society 40th Annual Composition Contest.
Alter Ego is provided as a professionally bound folio and includes a CD-ROM with both stereo and mono methods of implementing soundscape and click track.
