Multi-Percussion Duet Double Take Composed by Jamieson Carr
Written for two multi-percussion stations configured in mirror image and split by a shared bass drum, Double Take launches at a blistering speed for nearly 7 minutes of exciting counterpoint. Each player rides a steady, aggressive ostinato on the rim of the snare drum. Sparse interjections occur on bongos, woodblocks, cowbells, splash cymbals, and ascending opera gongs. These gradually increase in frequency while a steady groove ensues.
From the urgent downbeat through the final climax, Double Take will capture an audience's excitement while providing a perfect vehicle to feature a pair of aggressive percussionists.
