Snare Drum, Tenor Drum & Tambourine
Having had the freedom to modify a given piece, I took the idea for the time signature and instruments from the first given example under project 3 (example 9).
2) Maracas, Wood Block, Bongos, Timpani
Surprisingly, it was more of a challenge for me to write a piece using only one instrument than to write one for four. Seeing that I had more material to work with, it also ended up being slightly longer than my previous compositions.
Except for one little Bongo-Solo (bars 9 to 13) the piece is arranged polyphonic. Even though this part of the course focuses on unpitched percussion, I allowed myself to insert a simple melody ( only using C, A, D and one single B as a leading-tone) played by the Timpani.
