Sheet Music: Performance Parts
In the dream : for percussion sextet / Erik Griswold.
by Erik Griswold (2004)
In the dream uses traditional orchestral percussion (vibraphone, marimba, bass drums…) along with non-western instruments and found objects (gongs, rain stick, brake drums, metal springs) to produce a layering of sound colors from distinct cultural sources. The piece makes frequent use of fast "hockets" - rapid fire exchanges in which two players "bounce" interlocking rhythms off each other - in particular with the vibraphone and marimba. The combination of layered tone colours and interlocking rhythms at times creates a "shimmering" effect, where the individual sounds blur together.
