Contemporary Percussion Compositions

September 6, 2015 in All Opportunities, Composers by newmusicscotland

The Percussion World Duo is inviting all composers to submit compositions to us to be performed in June 2016. Feel free to add in improvisation, syncopation, and graphic notation. Please do be aware that we prefer pieces which are faster tempo. If your composition is chosen, and you live in NY, NJ, or CT, you will be invited to come see our limited audience end-of-the-year show! You do not have to live in NY, NJ, or CT to submit compositions.

Submissions can be for as many percussion instruments (except for any 4 mallet percussion), but must be playable for two players.

Pieces should be longer than 30 seconds and no longer than 8 minutes.

The Percussion World Duo is an advanced percussion group who plays all kinds of percussion instruments and melodies/rhythms. We focus on fusion percussion, which is what we call it when you mix contemporary melodies with pop rhythms. We’ve done compositions by composers as famous as Steve Reich, and also our own compositions.

All submissions must be emailed to (with score, and mp3).
