AMAZONIA for Percussions Ensemble just published at Bachovich Editions

AMAZONIA was commissioned by the « Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Versailles ». amazonia
The first performance took place in Versailles, France on 27th may 2016.
The initial idea of the work consisted in imaging the Amazonian wood. I have been listening to various wood recordings and have tried to “transpose” the different noises.
The work begins with few measures based on the “Cup Song”. I saw it in a school playground some time ago, pupils were playing with a big dexterity the characteristic rhythm of the Cup song! The beginning of the piece was found!
“AMAZONIA” is dedicated to Meili Chuang, Professor of Percussions, CRR Versailles.
