This subject will follow a trajectory beginning with Charles Wilcoxin's snare drum compositions, progressing through to complex contemporary rhythmic works for drum set. The ensemble will perform both through-composed and semi-composed materials, allowing for improvisational theory and action. Works included in the drumming ensemble repertoire will explore a variety of stylistic and rhythmic areas, thus offering a broad overview of contemporary and traditional drumming practices, rhythmic frameworks, and improvisational prompts.
