Strands of Time is a marching snare drum solo written specifically for the concert hall by Brian Blume. It is accompanied by a pre-recorded audio soundscape which weaves the acoustic sound into a futuristic digital realm. The title refers to the idea of multiple strands (or threads) of live and electronic music that intertwine and blend to create a unified whole. The piece requires precise tempo mastery and rudimental control. Accompaniment is provided in digital audio format and a variety of setup suggestions are given.
Score includes a CD-Rom containing audio accompaniment files and various setup suggestions.
