Permutations is a new percussion composition created to explore four way independence and the rhythmic space available to a drummer/percussionist. It was composed using techniques I picked up while working on the Mars Science Laboratory rover and the Soil Moisture Active Passive mission.
An eight part video series is available on YouTube to explain the concept and techniques behind Permutations.
Included with this album are a number of bonus items:
– 13 page booklet detailing the process used to create Permutations
– Permutations2 and Permutations3 sheet music
– Computer code used to generate Permutations2 and Permutations3
– MIDI file for each piece
