From David Bruce Composer.

The last 100 years have seen an explosion in the amount of music written where Percussion is the star of the show – solo pieces for multiple percussion instruments, concertos, duos, quartets and percussion ensembles. In this video I look at the influences that led to this rise in percussion compositions, and talk to percussionist/composer Gene Koshinski about how to write a piece with no pitches and also how to notate it!
