D’Drum and Dallas Symphony success

“The audience fairly exploded Saturday night in the most uproarious ovation I can remember at a Dallas Symphony Orchestra classical concert.” – Dallas Morning News

I did the music copyist, preparation, and engraving work for composer Stewart Copeland and publisher G. Schirmer. The piece is called Gamelan D’Drum and was commissioned specifically for the D’Drum percussion ensemble. The piece is a percussion experiment combining a traditional orchestra with a massive gamelan orchestra. Since gamelan isn’t typically written down, I got to invent a lot of music notation for it. Jaap van Zweden conducted the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.
