SEASONS OF THE DRUM
The deep, powerful sounds of the timpani combine with a variety of
ethnic percussion instruments to create a sonic portrait of the changing seasons.
Environmental sounds, flute and synthesizer combine with the drums to
create a unique series of compositions which feature many Native American rhythms.
