Hoping perhaps someone here has performed this piece for Max and live percussion and can point me in the right direction as I’m a tad frustrated.

I purchased the score direct from Steve Weiss Music. In the score, you’re told to go to Chester Novello to download the electronic files. I’ve done so – it’s a standalone Max 5 app for the song. HOWEVER – none of the aiff files are included. Nor were they included with the score. That’s sort of a crucial missing piece. Also, there is ZERO information for the electronic set up – ie mic placement, etc.

I’ve emailed Chester Novello, Steve Weiss and the maker of the Max file for further information, but I’m hoping to get a jump on this. Getting the electronic bits set up is a pretty integral part of working on this piece.

I’ve heard back from the publisher and creator of the patch since my post, thanks for the PMs for offering assistance! I should hopefully be all set now – there’s was supposed to be a cd with my score that wasn’t included for some reason.

I’m a percussionist out of British Columbia, Canada, and I’m having the exact same problem as you. Do you think you could pass along the sound files ( I haven’t been lucky enough to hear back from anyone I’ve contacted, and any help would be so greatly appreciated. I’m rather close to a performance date, so I’m really feeling the crunch with this issue.

Thanks once more!

Apologies – just seeing this message now. Did you get everything sorted? I can forward the files if not…
