OnRush (2020)

Available Spring 2020 from C. Alan Publications

“OnRush” is a completely electronic piece for MIDI controllers and Apple’s MainStage software, commissioned by Tahlequah Kirk and the Granbury HS percussion ensemble for their performance at the 2019 Percussive Arts Society International Convention IPEC showcase concert. OnRush borrows heavily from the Electronic Dance Music genre, but these energetic synths, evolving arpeggiations, and thumping bass hits are performed note-by-note by live performers through traditional notation.

OnRush comes with a score, parts, .MainStage file, and guide PDF
