Composer / Arranger : Roode, Chris
Composer / Arranger Details: Chris Roode showcases his talent for weaving complex and simple rhythms into elaborate interesting compositions in works for both the percussion and electronic musical genres. Chris made his compositional debut with the percussion ensemble piece Taking Out the Trash. While studying at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Chris wrote several pieces for solo and ensemble, including Bliss, Trio, and Lake Hallow’s Sunset.

After graduation, he directed the percussion and band program at PS126, in Manhattan’s lower east side. It was here that he started writing music with the intent of teaching percussion fundamentals. His music ensembles performed original compositions throughout New York City at venues such as The Fat Cat and the Tribeca Family Festival.

In 2008, Chris Roode released Spaciprocity V2, an electronic music album on which he merged his rhythmic skills with electronic instruments, creating a surreal soundscape. He further explored electro-acoustic compositions during his graduate studies with works including Mandlebrot Plot and Indie 501. Chris currently is combining rudimental drumming, West African rhythms, and dubstep as he works on his latest electronic music release.

Chris Roode resides in Dallas, TX with his wife and two cats where he teaches, performs, and composes music. He has a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and a Masters in Music Technology from Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis.

Programme Notes / Performance Details :Lattes on the House is an introductory piece written to teach the application of beginning rhythms to a percussion ensemble. Written for three sizes of conga drums along with claves and tambourine, this five-player instrumentation can be easily expanded by doubling or tripling up on each part. And congas aren’t required either; various sizes of frame or hand drums can be effective too, as the ensemble builds grooves together and also accompanies each section as it struts its stuff in a lengthy solo section. You bring the espresso, have the students bring the steamed milk, and in no time you’ll be enjoying Lattes on the House.

Lattes on the House comes as a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing individual parts and a recording.
