From composer & publisher Edward J Hines: Yeni Makam 4 for clarinet and percussion duo is a challenging and very satisfying chamber music work which explores traditional Middle Eastern rhythms (usul) and microtonal modes known as makam (maqamat). Scored for clarinet and def (tambourine), bandur (frame drum) and davul (small bass drum), Yeni Makam 4 bridges ancient musical practices of the Middle East with contemporary demands of Western chamber music. The work weaves through four different movements including: Taksim (Improvisation), Bir Karpuzmus (It was a Watermelon), Harem Havasi (Harem Song) and Dan Dun Davulu (The High-Low Sound of the Bass Drum).

Based on Turkish modes called "Makams" based on western modes and scales but reflect oriental ntonations because they predate equal temperment. Detailed performance for both players. Such techniques as playing on individual sets of jingles ot the tambourine. Seperate parts no score.
