Project 2 – duets

The second project in this section of the course invites us to start writing for two percussion instruments.  In this first example I am passing the main rhythmical idea from the snare drum to the triangle, which adapts the idea slightly with accompaniment (I thought of it as a kind of encouragement!) from the snare drum.

In the second example I decided to use the egg shaker as a simple accompaniment to the more elaborate line of the bongos.  As the bongos line intensifies, the accompaniment matches it with a more energetic rhythm.

P.S. Hooray – I have now figured out how to export images from Sibelius so no longer have to remember how to take screenshots on my Mac laptop!
