Stop Speaking (Snare Drum)

By Andy Akiho

Stop Speaking is a solo for snare drum with digital playback.  An amusing and challenging piece where the player’s drumming converses with “Vicki,” the digital storyteller.  Great challenges lay in the drumming itself, but greater challenges lie in coordination with the playback.  The solo can be purchased with 2 CD’s; one is a full playback from start to finish, the other is split into parts that are repeated, allowing for easier practicing without constant rewinding.
