Easy/MediumConcert Percussion

9-10 Players

Composed during the transition of spring to summer, Brian Blumes’s percussion ensemble piece West Winds is inspired by the mild and gentle winds that usher in a new season. In this piece, Blume utilizes different percussive effects like clusters of various wind chimes, mark trees, and suspended cymbals to create the illusion of wind sounds. As a contrast to this ambient and lyrical music, the piece also features a very deep groove with tom-toms and a djembe part creating rhythmic interest throughout. The timpani part is optional, making the piece performable by 9-10 players. West Winds comes as a professionally printed and bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.
