A 12 piece drum line which splits off in so many different ways! Fugue ideas are passed up and down the line with stick clicks to boot. The piece sees the players moving to the next drum along with the end player running along the back to the other end of the line!
The Crab works exactly as the title suggests, with players entering the drum line from the side in fugal effect. Although written for 8 players, 10 drums are required to fulfil the choreographic requirements of the piece as there are instructions to move to the drums either side of the player.
Through the atmospheric and powerful beginning a mysterious 7/8 groove is introduced. The use of asymmetric time signatures develops throughout the piece, encompassing the full range of both instruments. The energetic nature of the melodic and rhythmic material create a show-stopping and refreshingly inventive duet.
