Xerosis

'Xerosis' provides a good instructive experience for performers, while also putting underused accessory instruments and techniques in the hands of the players. Josh Gottry’s trio takes those often forgotten concepts and asks performers to think more carefully about the way these instruments can interact with an ensemble.

Roundabout

'Roundabout' uses a split-apart version of a drumset with Latin percussion elements dispersed between three players to create a hocketed contemporary percussion ensemble trio with strong jazz influences … a groovy addition to a percussion ensemble for players with strong drumming and ensemble skills.

Tight Quarters

The piece can truly be played either way [with or without glockenspiel] without disrupting the performers’ or audiences’ experience and enjoyment. At just over three minutes in length 'Tight Quarters' is quick and exciting, both musically and visually.
