Description:

      This show transforms the entire percussion ensemble into the moving parts of one massive machine. Visual/musical repetition is a vital theme to help portray the mechanical nature of the production. Creating various gears, pistons, belts, etc all give way to infinite visual and GE opportunities. 
      This show was originally commissioned for the fall of 2012 and was released for the 2014 indoor season. "Mechanize" was a WGI A Class finalist with Foothill HS in 2015. This is a custom version adapted for indoor percussion.
