Publisher: C. Alan Publications (2014)
Composed: 2014
Duration: 2’45”
Difficulty: Medium-Easy
Instrumentation (4 players): finger cymbals, triangle, small suspended cymbal, ride cymbal

A percussion quartet simply intended to explore resonant metal, non-pitched instruments within the percussion family in a chamber setting, Ting 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 metalic percussive sound is entertaining for audiences and performers alike. Ting is scored for finger cymbal, triangle, small cymbal (14-16″), and medium ride cymbal.

Easily accessible, and just under three minutes, this “exploration of metal” will work well for young percussionists … In a world of faster, louder, and more difficult, it is great to see well-planned pieces for younger performers. – T. Adam Blackstock
