Amber Eyes

Amber Eyes is a medium tempo soca in ABA form with a good amount of syncopation throughout the ensemble that just makes you want to dance. Written for four parts with a split in the tenor, it is an ideal piece for small band venues, but the parts can also be doubled in larger bands. high school/college.

Calypsoca: for Steelband
and Percussion Trio

Calypsoca: for Steelband & Percussion Trio

A unique and innovative work scored for steel band (lead, seconds, guitar and bass) and three multi-percussionists!
As the title implies, much of the work owes itself to inspiration from the music
of the Caribbean. While rhythms and melodic
material that might readily
be associated with pan permeates a great portion of the work,
the traditional notation does give way to "timed proportional cells" that give a distinct contemporary flavor to certain parts of this work: here players roll golf balls in the pans, play with knuckles on the sides (pan skirts), play with brushes (on pans) and rub the tam tam with super balls! Aside from a set of pans (all pan parts could be doubled if desired), the percussion instrumentation includes: marimbas (2), tam tam, cymbals, brake drum, cabasa, snare drum, congas, shakers, triangle, . . . .
This title would make a very interesting addition to either a percussion ensemble or steel pan concert!

Dancing Colors of the Nighttime Firesky (The)

Inspired by observation of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), this piece offers the rich sound and texture of the steelpan as a tribute to the complexity and beauty of this phenomenon. This unique piece makes use of sympathetic resonance technique to create sections of ethereal sounds out of which grows the main body of the work in a Soca feel. high school/college.

Juice Blenders

Juice Blenders is a bass driven calypso written in a happy island flair. A catchy melody and tight harmonies make this a very “hummable” and memorable song. This tune builds with intensity throughout, until the band cuts out for a final bass lead, ending with a climactic and energetic coda.

Widowmaker

This piece aims to present a different sound for steel ensemble by means of unique orchestration, progressive rhythms, and challenging textures that
run the gamut - all the way from fugal to techno. While scored for a traditional steel band, it exhibits more challenging "engine room" parts than usual, in that they are meticulously notated.
