Saturday Distraction – Ensembles

This week I’ll be giving you a few drum ensemble clips to check out. Drum ensembles are tricky to arrange for, so I have the utmost respect for anyone who writes or performs this music. Here are a few different ensemble styles that may pique your interest.

Hip Pickles – a stripped-down drumline:

STOMP – Eight talented musos that play junk percussion – literally anything that’s available!

The Drumbassadors – drum kit duet:

The Blue Man Group – can only be described as ‘different’:

and finally, a short film from Sweden entitled Music for One Apartment and Six Drummers:

One day I’ll get around to writing some ensemble music…

Enjoy, kids!
