Short Fuse

Short Fuse is a drumline style piece featuring grooves based on drum kit, latin and samba patterns, and it can be expanded to suit ensembles of any size. It also includes a number of stick tricks as well as choreographed movements and room for extended solos. We wrote Short Fuse for Sasha and Jack, two students who played Danger Line! for us so brilliantly that we wanted to write them a follow-up challenge!
