Chaos Supreme, Josh Walker’s med-easy piece for percussion ensemble, is an upbeat and catchy work, made to introduce middle school players to mallet runs and drumset playing. The piece is made up of simple rhythms and melodies, but the tempo is quick and will push the technical capabilities of younger players, while exposing them to material they will eventually play in more advanced literature. If necessary, the mallet parts can be doubled to help keep extra personnel occupied.
Chaos Supreme comes as a professionally printed and bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.
