Medium Snare and Bass Drum Duo
by Danny Raymond
Instrumentation: Marching snare drum, Marching bass drum (played horizontally)*
*or mounted kick drum, floor tom, etc.
Streetmosphere by Danny Raymond is a groovy snare and bass drum duet with a drum corps style marching cadence feel. This medium-level piece draws inspiration from Latin rhythms, including the Rumba and Guaguancó. Raymond adapts the traditional drumline into a duet format featuring a snare drummer and horizontal bass drummer with a mounted cowbell. The snare drum performer has numerous opportunities to demonstrate their chops, while the bass drum performer locks in and embellishes the groove with the linear writing style. This piece is a perfect way to showcase two performers in the concert hall or adapt the piece into a full drumline cadence that will have everyone's head bobbing to the beat.
Streetmosphere ships as a printed, professionally bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or tablet viewing.
