“Flow is like Mudra meets Marimba Spiritual meets Trevino.”
– Dr. Eric Willie, Assistant Professor of Percussion, UNC Greensboro
I have always wanted to write a piece featuring a percussion soloist with a backing percussion group, a la Marimba Spiritual, Mudra, and Shadow Chasers. My new piece Flow does just that! It features a soloist who alternates between snare drum and marimba, accompanied by percussion trio.
Flow was commissioned by Dr. Eric Willie, Assistant Professor of Percussion at University of North Carolina Greensboro. He premiered the piece at PASIC 2013 accompanied by the Science Hill Percussion Ensemble. Below is a video performance of Flow from Eric’s PASIC premiere as well as an audio midi sample. The piece is now available for performance and can be purchased via my sheet music store.
I’m so thankful that Eric commissioned this piece. He is such a big supporter of new works for percussion and an absolutely stellar musician. Thank you, Eric!
