Modern Life by John Parker
One of John Parker’s most popular works, Modern Life explores through music the complexity of living in contemporary times.
It is scored for eight players – seven percussionists and electric bass, which features an extensive solo. Modern Life is an energetic and enjoyable work. It suits players of an intermediate skill level and beyond.
The piece was commissioned by the Ferny Grove State High School Percussion Ensemble and its director Stephanie McCaw. Many thanks for their ongoing support.
