  • Item Details

    Game Over for soloist and percussion ensemble is certainly a unique piece of music - percussionists tend to call of their assorted small instruments "toys", but it's never been taken quite so literally. Humorous but still musical, this work could easily find itself on any program that needed some lightheartedness.

    The soloist needs to be clever and must have some timpani and rudimental snare drum chops, but the rest of the ensemble parts are at an intermediate level - this piece could really highlight any 'outgoing' percussionist in your studio, backed up by younger players.

    The instrumentation listed below includes what was used on the premier performance, but many of the toy sounds can be substituted with other toys that sound interesting.


    • Soloist: Story Book, Timpani (played with Happy Hammers), Bells, Snare Drum
    • Player 1: Bells, Jibba-Jabber, Bird Call
    • Player 2: Vibraphone, Sound Tube, Bird Call
    • Player 3: Xylophone, Sound Tube, Bird Call
    • Player 4: 4.3-Octave Marimba (Top), Sound Tube, Bird Call
    • Player 5: 4.3-Octave Marimba (Bottom), Sound Tube, Bird Call
    • Player 6: Wood Blocks (2), Large Cowbell, Bird Call, Large Toms (2)
    • Player 7: Small Triangle, Tambourine, Bird Call, Chinese or Sleigh Bells, Brake Drums (2)
    • Player 8: Drum Set

    From the composer: Game Over was written for James Campbell, Professor of Percussion at the University of Kentucky. The work is loosely based on two children's tunes, one American and one Japanese, and has a decidedly playful feeling throughout. The solo part requires a creative multi-percussionist, timpanist, and rudimental snare drummer with a good sense of humor. The piece is divided into three distinct sections designed to present the soloist in a variety of musical settings. - Dan Moore
