  • Item Details

    Headache Miniatures is a percussion ensemble for six players in five movements, collaboratively written by Scott Ward, Eric Petrinowitsch, Dave Hall, Chris Tucker, and myself. Each movement was written with a similar instrumentation to Jim Casella's Katraterra.

    The composers all have their own writing styles, which come across clearly in each movement:

    • I. Stress...Relief (Scott Ward) is aggressive with a definitive groove, written with fast keyboard licks, punchy bass drum, and plenty of cymbals.

      II. Ragweed (Chris Tucker) has a pleasantly charming opening, evolving into a brisk and lighthearted section that could be described as a new-age hoe-down.

      III. Slow Burn (Dave Hall) pulls back into a more mysterious and contemplative realm that changes in mood from tranquil to darkly menacing.

      IV. Pressure Building (Eric Petrinowitsch) continually grows throughout the whole movement, from a fast but quiet layered groove to a relentless pounding.

      V. Frozen Peas (Michael Dooley) is nimble with a moto perpetuo-style that lilts heavily thanks to constantly shifting odd meters, with melodic lines that often flow over the groove.

    Difficulty: Medium to Medium +
