"Atmospheres-Mvt. II Fog and Frost" by Neil Paterson for Octet Percussion Ensemble DIGTAL Score/Parts/Recording
Fog and Frost is Part 2 of a series that seeks to create atmospheric, soundtrack-like pieces, hence the name “Atmospheres”. Many of the themes are weather related as a result. Fog and Frost was inspired by the many late night winter walks Neil would take home to the dorms after practicing. The practice building was on the opposite side of campus and the walks were often used to explore his imagination. The campus was not well lit and foggy nights were therefore especially eerie. This piece is for a percussion ensemble that covers a wide range of instruments and skill levels.
Duration ~4:30 8 Players w/ Common Percussion Ensemble Orchestration
