Stretched, warped, distorted, de-tuned, and mangled. Such was the fate of the recordings composer Pat Jacobs made using only a snare in order to create the fresh and energetic soundscape that complements the solo snare in this unique piece. Listeners will surely enjoy the high-energy result of the interplay between the soloist and soundscape’s echoing, mocking, and battling alter ego. Medium-advanced in level, this powerful showpiece won first place in the Percussive Arts Society 40th Annual Composition Contest.
Alter Ego is provided as a professionally bound folio and includes a CD-ROM with both stereo and mono methods of implementing soundscape and click track.
