I am excited to announce that my tribute to Steve Reich titled, Contents are Flammable has just been published through Bachovich Music Publications. Thanks to my friend, Andrew Beall, for making this piece available to the world and I look forward to hearing many interpretations of it.
To Steve Reich, thank you for the inspiration. Dr. Bruce Reiprich exposed me to your music when I was a freshman at Wilkes College and it has brought great joy to me ever since. With gratitude I dedicate Contents are Flammable to you!
Of the numerous performances that Contents are Flammable has enjoyed, there are three that I would like to mention:
Thank you so much to the students at all three schools, as well as everybody else who has programed it. My dream is to hear Contents are Flammable reincarnated with multiple instrument set ups as it can be performed a variety of ways.
Contents are Flammable is truly more than just a piece to program on your concert. This can be a semester long project of developing flam rudiments in any drum or percussion studio at the high school, college or professional level, and I would LOVE the opportunity to join you and your students for a clinic/master class helping to prepare it for a concert.
To Purchase the score and parts, please visit my friends at Bachovich Music Publications and order it today.
And if you’d like to have me join you to work on Contents are Flammable, as well as any other traditional or “not-so-traditional” rudimental drumming, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call. Let’s set something up right away and make music the way it is supposed to be...FUN!!!!!
