Instrumentation Set Number 1:
  • 8 x Other percussion ( 8 Players )
Programme Note:
Firedance is a dynamic and ferocious piece for percussion octet. Designed as both a musical and physical performance piece, Firedance challenges the performers to combine their instrumental performances with highly interlaced physical motions (such as clapping and stomping) that occur in conjuction with the instrumental parts. Through the use of asymmetrical meters and contrapuntal polyrhythms, Firedance races forward with a strong, driving rhythm that pushes the piece toward a powerful conclusion.
