** Stanton’s Staff Selection – 2007 **Key: Bb - Meters: 4/4, 2/4Rhythms: tied 8th note syncopation, 8th-quarter-8th syncopation, tripletsTeaching Concepts: minimalist music, articulations, accidentals, counting, subdivision
Using basic rhythmic and tonal patterns in minimalist style, this work effectively captures the 'impossible machine' - a machine in perpetual motion that continuously generates its own energy. Contrasting legato lines with syncopated rhythmic patterns make this mature sounding piece a blast to play! A great way to introduce minimalism to your students. Use this opportunity to hip them to John Adams' Short Ride in a Fast Machine and the music of Phlip Glass! (2:45)
