Odd Meter Etudes-OB

Composer: Gates, Everett

Publisher: Alfred

Edition: FXS6080


This series of etudes are original and incorporate a number of compositional techniques employed by contemporary composers: modal and contrived scales, twelve-tone organization, retrograde and melodic inversions, less usual formal organization, 3, 5, and 7 bar phrases, etc. Extremes of range have been avoided. Phrases have been ocnstructed with the limited breath control of young students in mind.
