#klangberlins: Rollkoffer

Project Description

Composers: Michael Edwards & Christian Tschuggnall

This is essentially a duo percussion piece, with each player drumming on 5 different surfaces to create 5 different surface sounds of the suitcase wheels.  There is a natural randomness to the real sound.  To create this we had both percussionists doing both open and closed pressrooms in triplets and sixteenth notes at the same time.  The female footsteps were created by finger taps on the violin, and the male footsteps by fingertips on the cello.
