Noise of Choice
Percussion CD by Tigger Benford
Ten Percussion pieces for Modern Dance combinations.
These pieces are divided into 2 sets.
Tracks 1-5 are for marimba with percussion overdubbing. Benford's marimba style is influenced by African Instrumental traditions as Kora and m'bira.
Selections for Marimba: The Blue Cruise (6:48), Processionist (9:36), Moon of Maroon (3:59), Evening Dream (5:29), Elephant's Memory (10:04)
Tracks 6-10 use softer sounding hand drums such as tabla and frame drums. Some tracks have rhythmic vocals. Mark Stewart (now with Paul Simon's band) adds a mandicello track and Phil Hamilton (of Pat Methany Band) adds a stunning vocal track.
Selections for Tabla & Hand Drum: Crazy 8 (4:33), Mark 4 (6:06), Kesh (5:20), Owed to Bo (5:14), Taj (6:13)
Most of these tracks keep the same opening tempo and rhythmic pattern throughout the length of the track. Also good for inprovisation.
