Permutations is a new percussion composition created by astronautical engineer and musician Morgan Hendry (Beware of Safety, The Laterite Road) to explore four way independence and the rhythmic space available to a drummer/percussionist. It was composed using techniques traditionally reserved for the engineering world.
An eight part video series is available on YouTube to explain the concept and techniques behind Permutations: bit.ly/NsjSDG
Included with this album are a number of bonus items:
- 13 page booklet detailing the process used to create Permutations
- Permutations2 and Permutations3 sheet music
- Computer code used to generate Permutations2 and Permutations3
- MIDI file for each piece
