Foundry Composed by John Mackey. For Concert Band. Published by Osti Music. (Catalog # OSTI)

Bold, rhythmic, and contemporary, Foundry sounds like the sonic incarnation of its title - imagine the forging of iron weaponry for a Lord of the Rings-style epic battle. From the composer's blog - "Wouldn't it be cool, as a percussionist, when you first realized that playing percussion wasn't just hitting a snare drum or playing a glockenspiel, but it also meant finding non-traditional instruments like trash cans and brake drums? Why not write the piece that could be the first to expose young percussionists to this concept?" This is what AEJ said to me probably two years ago. Thanks to her idea, and Facebook, I have a new piece: "Foundry," for concert band with "found" percussion.
