The Diamond Smugglers

The Diamond Smugglers Cover (Pan paperback, 1963)

This was a little ad hoc piece I was working on for fun. Lacking inspiration for a title, I only needed to cast my eyes towards by book shelf, where I found a 1967 edition of Ian Flemming’s Diamond Smugglers.

Opening bars of ‘Dance of the Shaolin Wooden Men’

The second movement of my first composition for percussion ensemble. I wrote this for the Brake Drum Assembly (now dis-assembled…?). The piece is for two musicians playing pitched instruments, and two musicians playing un-pitched instruments (including the eponymous ‘brake drum’). A full score is available in pdf format.
