Choose Your Own Adventure (CYOA)
Composer: David George
Instrumentation: Snare Drum (played with sticks, brushes, fingertips and timpani mallets)
Grading: A.M.E.B. 8 | ABS 5 (Advanced)
Based on the idea behind the books of the same name, the four movements of CYOA are performed in any order of the player’s choosing. Throughout the work, each groove is setup and built upon and just as quickly removed in this through-composed work. Players are challenged to bring this exciting new work to life - to create an adventure.
This work is a commission for the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Snare Drum Award.
