PERCUSSION IN THE Music 'WORLD
HE MUSIC we hear today has a colourful past. XYhethcr you pat-
ronize classical music, modern jazz, or both, makes no difference.
Both forms go back to ooo A-XD. when an ambitious ltalian, intrigued by
musical sounds, laboriously devised the music static and modern system of
notation. Up until Guido d'.-Xrezzo came along there was no accurate
method of transferring musical sounds to the written page.
But long before d'Arezzo's time, even before the time of civilized
man, savages in primeval forests had learned to utilize a crude form of music.
That, of course, was percussion. By stretching the skins of animals across
the open ends of hollow logs, it was possible to achieve a single tone musical
effect. XYhen more than a single drum of this sort was used, there resulted a
series of different tonesg and thus was the first music devised.
Primitive people used the drum as a sort of communication. Probably
one day when Mr. Cavemanf was far from home he must have accidentally
knocked his club against a hollow log and was surprised when his spouse told
him she had heard it from far off in their cave. From then on he hit the hol-
log logs on purpose to notify Mom that he had been successful in a Dinosaur
hunt and that Pop was bringing home the bacon ,for should I say Dinosaurb.
At any rate, the drum was one of man's first inventions, and he used it
to expect his moods, as a means of communication, and to entertain himself.
Now, hundreds of years later, it is still being used in much the same
way. Great composers have recognized the value of the drum in a sustaining
mood. Berlioz, for example, scored parts for sixteen kettle drums and ten
drummers in his "Requiem." . '
Man has used the drum in peace and war, in happiness and sorrow. The
roll of drums has been used to pay tribute to a nation's heroes, and to dmm
Russian Cossacks, riding at the French, beating on drums slung on either side”
