Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)


Twelve Drummers Drumming was commissioned by the musician and artist Emma Daman Thomas for the launch event of the band Islet's EP 'Liquid Half Moon' in December 2016. The piece was a response to the line 'Twelve Drummers Drumming' and its design and structure were informed by my research into working with improvised music, percussion-based performance, electroacoustic composition and composing with emergent rhythm patterns. The piece was written to be performed by twelve amateur percussionists, and was conducted by the musician Emma Daman Thomas. The score and the conduction strategy were both based on my work as a free improviser and as a composer of both contemporary classical and electroacoustic music, and comprised both live performance and digitally manipulated recordings of the Christmas carol 'The Twelve Days of Christmas'.
