|Publisher Details :
C. Alan Publications was founded in 1989 to fill a need for high-quality percussion literature. Since that time, they have adhered to the highest standards of music integrity in the percussion music they publish. In 1997, they added a line of concert band music to their catalogue, which continues to flourish. More recently they added music for orchestra (youth, string and full), brass ensemble, chorus, jazz ensemble and chamber ensembles.
In addition they are the sole distributor of 'Whole Sum Productions' percussion catalogue (WS). Their music receives extensive exposure through performances on international concerts, clinics and conventions and is widely available on compact disc.

|Programme Notes / Performance Details :
The musical influence for this cymbal ensemble came from my work with marching percussion while the theatrical aspects were a result of seeing the performing group Stomp. Stage directions appear throughout the score and should serve as a guide.
Individual performance venues may invite and encourage creativity in staging the piece. A notation guide is included as a key to the cymbal sounds and articulations.
