Trio for PercussionMitchell Beck - Tapspace Publications
By design, Trio uses relatively inexpensive instruments and has a compact setup. Some are found instruments like cans, glass bottles, and planks of wood. The rest of the instruments are more typical to the percussion family, such as woodblocks, tambourines, shakers, and cowbells. The musical material consists of a disjunct groove that is interrupted by complex rhythmic ideas and odd time signatures. The focus on different players shifts throughout the piece, keeping the players and the audience on their toes.
