Programme Notes / Performance Details :This mixed-meter jam for percussion ensemble does masterful things with timbral interplay without losing any of its forward motion or rhythmic creativity. The triangle part underpins more disjunct figures in the toms and bass drum, with wood block hits punctuating the alternation between 5/8 and 6/8 bars, or between 2/, 3/, and 4/4 later in the piece. For everyone’s sake, let’s hope that no one tries to clap along at your concert. The audience can just save their clapping for the end of this fantastic bit of fun and funk!

Funkadunk comes as a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing individual parts and a recording.
