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.

Programme Notes / Performance Details :

Although the scoring is rather mallet instrument heavy, this is very much a rhythm-oriented piece. Dialogue between the drums and mallet instruments forces the listeners to constantly shift their attention from one to the other.
