One of the purposes of doing these flash composition sketches is to tap into my creative subconscious. Having to write as much music as possible in 10 minutes without premeditation has really spurred my creativity -- and created some surprises.
This week's effort was another percussion trio -- my third in this series. When I wrote this, I wasn't consciously thinking of the other two fragments (see: Diabelli Project 055 and 075). But they do sort of fit together, especially when I look at the forces involved.
|Trio||Player 1||Player 2||Player 3|
|055||5 Timbales||Tamborine, Wood Block||Cymbal, Gong|
|078||4 Tympani (F, C#, D, F)||Tamborine||Snare Drum|
|088||4 Tympani (F, D, E, F)||4 Timbales||Cymbal, Snare Drum|
It's possible to have three players cover everything for all three sketches. Here's this week's entry:

What happens next? That's up to you. As always, this sketch is offered freely for any and all to use. Just let me know of the results. And just for the record -- when I've completed the Diabelli Project, I'll be returning to this trio of trios and see if they're actually part of a much larger work.
