I finally got to play music with my friend, Drew Tucker! I wrote Driven with him in mind, and we premiered it last week at the first annual MalletLab summer mallet intensive. Thanks for your friendship and musicianship, Drew! The piece is now available on my site if anyone out there wants to play it. #percussion #marimba #vibraphone @itsnotaxylophone
Driven (2017) was written for Drew Tucker and premiered at the first annual MalletLab Summer Mallet Intensive in Delray Beach, FL. It is scored for percussion duo, (4.5 octave marimba +kick drum, vibraphone + snare drum), and audio track accompaniment.
Drew Tucker might be the hardest working person I know. He has a drive to not only present percussion music in new ways, but to teach young musicians through a holistic educational philosophy that encompasses far more than just percussion. He is passionate about making his audiences and students better people through his music, and does so through a counterculture mindset. I love that.
Like Drew, I wanted to push the envelope with Driven. It requires each player to simultaneously perform on a mallet instrument while also navigating a kick drum and snare drum, respectively, creating a broken-beat style groove that underlies a rave-like audio track.
