About

From Song Database Editor Wendy Jedlička…

This “Sketches” section of the TaikoSource Song Database is a place to share small parts. It need not be a whole song, just a few phrases, or a fun groove will do nicely. Sometimes a simple audio theme is enough to give people inspiration. Composer, Julie Schramke (Taikollaborative), created her song Mori no Koe based on the pattern for “shave and a haircut..2-bits.” What might your fun little pattern inspire? Contact us with your audio sketch to share. A basic mp3 recording with a short write-up about the sketch is all we need. If you can write-out your pattern too, then bonus! Use the “Submit a Song” link to submit your info and mp3.

Sketch: 2164
About: On a 10°F evening in mid-January, a bunch of curious people got together in the (chilly) Taiko practice room at 2164 Rosewood Ln N, in Roseville MN, USA, with Kris Bergstrom, Maz Baba, and Shoji Kameda to delight in their Compose by Number Workshop — we soon warmed-up the place! —Wj
Note: 2164 is also included as a song on the database as it’s a bit more extensive than one phrase and is used by Taikollaborative as a transition piece with hand percussion (Uchiwa and Clave), but it’s also not really a whole long song either. Where might you take this base idea? —Wj

General Groove 1
About: The pieces in the General Groove series come from this odd idea: What if way back when only the drummers showed-up on the day of the battle? How different would conflicts look today if they were resolved only with drums? People will have conflicts, they may even want to come to blows, but resolving the issues through the beat of drums would make the world a much groovier, and healthier, place. — Wj
Special thanks to Roy Hirabayashi and Kris Bergstrom for helping me discover I can ‘paint’ pictures with musical notes.

Zen Garden (on cookie tin and toilet)
About: It may sound like a Zen garden… but it is a toilet and a cookie tin! Finger tapping the bottom like a gong; the top lid like a drum; and the side of cookie tin with fingernails for percussive accents. Toilet filling sounds like waterfall. But hearing the toilet tank slowly stopping (soon, a quiet toilet), I changed suddenly to the end, with a last echoing gong sound. That was fun! One recording take. — VC
