Treuting – Extremes
extremes was written in 2009 as a part of Sō Percussion’s evening length work, Imaginary City. Imaginary City was commissioned by six performing art centers in six different cities and the rhythms in extremes come from those cities: Brooklyn, Burlington, Denver, Helena, Houston, and Cleveland.
Though it is most commonly played around a concert bass drum with cymbals and pitched metal placed on the drum and a few more pitched instruments added alongside the drum, the instrumentation is flexible and can be played in many ways.
Extremes is one of Jason’s most popular works, having been performed by many school percussion ensembles around the country.
This score contains instructions and notated music for realizing unique performances of Extremes.
