What's Included

Please note this download is for the video file. It does not include the score. See below for where to purchase the score.

Mentacide - for solo snare drum and digital audio - is built around the letter-by-letter construction of words read by an old speak’n’learn children’s toy. This video - created by David Downes  - visually constructs the words in sync with the music, to enhance the audience experience of your performance. The audio track in this video contains the complete backing track required for a live performance of Mentacide.

The text is paraphrased from Henry Giroux’s "The Violence of Organised Forgetting"

The score is available here
