"Scored for 8 players, Tusk draws compositionally from various aspects of African music. The instruments used include bullroars, gankogui (double bell), xylophone and various types of drums. The harmonic/melodic elements are based on a hemitonic pentatonic scale and the rhythmic patterns are inspired by various styles of African drumming - including the use of poly-rhythms and instances of call & response. This is a lively and unique work that requires each of the eight players to utilize more than one instrument during the course of the performance. Players should have a good time with this one and audiences should readily embrace it as well!
