Featured Composition: Parallel Passages (solo timpani + tape) by Tom Hamilton

This Underground Classic by Tom Hamilton for timpani and tape from the late 1970s is a unique choice for any student or professional recital. The 1970s-style synthesized electronic soundscape (provided on CD) creates a evocative canvas for the driving rhythms and ethereal glissandi in the timpani. This work (recently rediscovered) is probably the first to feature timpani with electronics! Click HERE to hear audio samples.
