Nick Werth’s Boom Bap is an advanced ensemble piece for percussion sextet. The term “boom bap” refers to an onomatopoeia for the prominent percussive sounds in hip-hop: kick and snare. In this piece, Nick employs some challenging polyrhythms and dotted-tuplet rhythms in order to imitate the varied rhythmic styles and speaking patterns of hip-hop artists. He also uses a wide palette of percussion sounds throughout the piece, where many of the instruments are shared among the performers via a uniquely intertwined setup.

This piece was commissioned by James LaBrecque and the Highland Park High School Percussion Ensemble.
