Medium-Advanced Concert Percussion
by Darrien Spicak

Enter the dark and mysterious musical landscape of Tenebrous Paradigm by Darrien Spicak. Drawing inspiration from a wide range of horror film soundtracks and the music of Studio Ghibli by Joe Hisaishi, Spicak creates a diverse musical world that is equally foreboding, intricate, and vigorous. Tenebrous Paradigm juxtaposes sections of minimalist compositional techniques and complex, marching battery influenced percussive sections.
Tenebrous Paradigm is a Med-Advanced percussion orchestra requiring 14 performers and a wide range of instrument. Spicak has crafted a profound piece that will engage audiences and challenge performers' technical and artistic abilities.
Tenebrous Paradigm ships as a printed, professionally bound score, and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or tablet viewing.
