A work simply intended to explore the frame drum family of percussion instruments within in a chamber setting, Framed is an excellent change of pace piece for percussion ensembles. Appropriate for run-out concerts, tour performances, or for a “front of curtain” selection to open your percussion ensemble concert, this creative exploration of frame drum sound possibilities is entertaining for audiences and performers alike.

… an excellent piece for percussionists to showcase their versatility … provides aspiring hand drummers the chance to practice and perfect their basic sounds … traditional rhythms on each of the instruments are played, overlapped, and expanded to create a texture of pulse and groove … – Justin Alexander
