Trans4mations av Bart Vanderbeke. Studier for trommesett med fre køller.
Stykkene er i progressiv rekkefølge. For trommiser som behersker trommesett og vi lære seg å spille med fire køller (melodisk). Et «mellomstadie» der man benytter trommesettet man allerede har før man skaffer seg en marimba aller liknende.
