Jeff Ausdemore describes Deinde as a forward-looking piece that simply asks, “What’s next?” The title itself is the Latin word for “next.” This programmatic idea is explored through a sensitive harmonic language, delicate textures, and a range of emotional development. Initially somber, a persistent groove builds into an optimistic, earnest expression of hope.

On a technical level, the piece explores simple four-mallet grooves, melodic accompanying lines, and a wide variety of textures. At times, individual members of the ensemble provide tasteful colors to the sound; other times, the full group reaches grandiose peaks. Deinde is a brilliant addition to any percussion ensemble concert, sure to touch performers and audiences alike!

Deinde ships as a printed, professionally bound score, and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.
