Bang-A-Box (4:36)

Cover of Pfitz Pfest: Scott Pfitzinger's Graduate Composition Recital

From Pfitz Pfest: Scott Pfitzinger's Graduate Composition Recital

Performed by Scott Comanzo, Emilio Buonanni, Victoria Sparks, and AJ Jones (all on misc. percussion) on 19 April 2010 at Butler University, Indianapolis, IN.

Percussion music can be made with just about anything in the world. Scott was inspired to write this piece for non-pitched percussion while tapping on different parts of a metal computer cabinet one day while waiting for a computer program to install. The four percussionists can use anything they like as long as they fit the assigned “sound families” of Tiny, Small, Medium, and Large. Anything from coffee cups to bass drums is fair game, from traditional percussion to daily household objects.

This piece is actually written for “four percussionists or groups of percussionists,” so it could be used by high school or even middle school percussion ensembles, since it is fairly straightforward except for the polyrhythmic sections in the middle that put 2 beats against 3, 3 against 4, 4 against 5, and 5 against everybody!
