Shift Happens
(Sextet for Violin, Cello, Saxophones, Clarinets, Piano and Percussion)
Approx. duration = 16 minutes


MIDI recording – This piece has yet to be performed.

There are quite a few effects that are in the score, which just do not translate to the MIDI recording, mainly the opening glissandi while trilling, and the singing bowl section. Also, percussion sounds (drums and cymbals especially) never sound very good in Finale. But the recording is useful for getting a feel for the work, and most of the piece sounds ok.

INSTRUMENTS:

CLARINETS: B-flat, E-flat, B-flat Bass
SAXOPHONES: Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Baritone
PERCUSSION: Kick drum, 4 drums of varying sizes (low, medium, medium high, high), Cowbell, Marimba (sub. Vibraphone), Xylophone, 2 susp. cymbals, Singing bowl (preferably tuned to B-flat below middle C), 2 Crotales (tuned to C# and D), optional Djembe
