Dead Dog Boogie
33 Parts for £10·00

‘Dead Dog’ is actually a kind of chocolate cake and nothing whatsoever to do with domesticated quadrupeds (in spite of the picture on the cover!) This piece was conceived for a junior orchestra workshop day. The up-beat tempo and character of the piece went down very well with the young musicians and the audience. I have only done this piece with a larger group (60+) and it is a bit more of a challenge, requiring some players with a bit of experience behind them. You need as a minimum piano, drums and a bass instrument to make a rhythm section and then at least a couple of lead instruments to carry the main tune (say flute 1 and clarinet 1). The best effect will be gained with a balance of wind, brass and strings as all departments have something to contribute to the arrangement, but you do not need to cover every part.

The recording is completely fake – sorry! – real one on the way. Computer playback should give you the general idea, though.
