Part 1

Project 3 untuned percussion groups

Eastern forest – Full Score

This is a concatened set of groups of untuned percussion in the spirit of Project 3 of the Open College of the Arts Composition 1 course.

Also acts as a test for publication of a work from Sibelius 7.5 as a pdf and of a .wav file

The three-minute piece should be self-explanatory if it works well.  It was stimulated by a night walk many years back in the Malaysian jungle and the effect of storm and rain on the cicadas.  The last note playing back here as a piano note (no Sibelius sample) is intended to be a taped birdsong crescendo and diminuendo, fading away to nothing as the tamtam and gongs sustained ringing itself fades away to nothing.

WordPress doesn’t seem to accept .sib files so I would have to email those for assessment.
