Bjørn Bolstad Skjelbred; 3 Grooves for Percussion Quintet are written with the intention
of bringing some of the beats and some of the intensity from
pop/rock/jazz-music into the world of contemporary percussion
music. The patterns are very short and easy to get hold of, and
the pieces are written within a certain technical range, so they
should be possible to play for young percussionists. The instruments
noted in the score are only suggestions from the composer, and
the performers are free to choose their own combinations of
instruments. The same goes for the tempoes. The most important
issue for the musicians who want to play these pieces, is to
keep the beat and the accurate timing similar to the way
pop/rock-musicians focus on rhythm; a very ”metronomic”
approach to the beat. The 3 Grooves are written in both Quintet
and Trio versions.
