As low as $70.00
Didgeridoo (d-flat) and orchestra. The name of the piece is a joke with the word Didgeridoo. It was commissioned by the Trondheim Military Band to be performed on a series of children's concerts. The idea behind the piece was to show the origin of brass instruments and the use of lip vibration to produce sound. A big challenge was to deal with the fact that the Didgeridoo only has one single note (a d-flat) that is present during the whole piece. It starts as a call from far away presented by a duet between the didgeridoo and the flugelhorn. The euphoniums and the marimba continues with a beautiful legato line that carries the four bar cord progression that the whole piece is built upon. One by one the instrument groups joins in on an optimistic little fanfare until everything is suddenly interrupted by a heavy rock groove (!) on the didgeridoo. The trombone kicks of a groovy solo followed by a fugue in the cornets before the beat is calmed down by the euph/marimba legato line at the end.See sound and pdf samples for further information.
