Hokkaido Jishin Op. 37
for Percussion Ensemble
Dr. Gregory Jackson
Hokkaido Jishin is about the many earthquakes that have occurred in or around the Hokkaido area in Japan over the past decades. This composition is at times very loud to represent the power of the earthquake. The percussionists should perform this piece with great intensity throughout, even during the soft sections that are barely heard to generate a sensation of reoccurring aftershocks.
This percussion ensemble is for 6 performers playing in the traditional Taiko drumming style using instruments that are common to most percussion studios. The Brake Drum part should use hard mallets for a metallic sound, and the smallest available drums should be used for the Snare Drum and Tom Tom parts. Tenor Drum 1, 2, and 3 should use the largest available drum. Large floor toms or small bass drums are preferable.
