Rennick-Slopes (SP)-Solo SD/P - Product Information
Paul Rennick's Slopes was originally commissioned by John Roberts in 2005 at The University of North Texas. It was conceived by reflecting on a lecture given in Aspen, Colorado by a physics professor from the University of Chicago. The topic was fractal geometry in nature and avalanche theory. The musical material captures the characteristics of these subjects, with a falling direction and downward sloping motifs. Slopes is a work for solo snare drum with percussion trio accompaniment. Combining rudimental and concert techniques, Paul Rennick has created a piece that is technically exciting and musically interesting.
