These pieces were originally created for the Angus percussion groups, but have sadly not been played.
At Odds piece with percussion, this is an arrangement of a piece that I wrote for Violin and piano. It is post minimalist, so lends itself to tuned percussion. The original is available on a CD and youtube.
Happy Piece 1 for Paul on Marimba, this was the first of the Happy Pieces. Written for band camp in Angus a few moons ago. It is really only playable as a duet on one marimba.
Happy Piece 2, is the second in the series. The original was Violin and 2 Marmbas, but also here is just a marimba version, there are also violin and piano versions and other version elsewhere.
Happy Piece 3 for tuned percussion, explores a similar rhythm to number 2 but takes it in a different direction. Scored for marimba duet on one marimba, and vibraphone. Also available as a piano piece.
Happy Piece 5 is a ground that gradually adds more instruments to the original tune. I like this piece a lot.
Maltese Rap Piece for Marcus tuned percussion version. This piece is a background for an imagined Rapper. Very chilled out.
Mhairis Wedding for Percussion, this is a rich arrangement of traditional Scottish tunes, including Mhairis Wedding.
Small Piece 18 for Marimba, a minimalist piece also available in Piano.
