Udacrep Akubrad - chamber version for percussion duo
What determines the special character of a piece of music written for percussion instruments is the very choice of sets of instruments. In Udacrep Akubrad
, I have chosen a similar set of instruments for each of the players: a marimba, two Darbuka, and a tom-tom. This piece draws its inspiration from the “Eastern” music, extending the boundaries of the region as far as the Indian sub-continent. The main source materials in this piece are scales and the rhythms emanating from the traditional classical music of the peoples of the Mediterranean; and repetitive minimalism, from the music tradition of the Middle East, as well as the recently developed techniques in western music.
