Tempo marking reads: Explosively! Powerful, exciting and engaging, Shock Wave features an engaging melody supported by a pulsing rhythm and well-placed articulations. Addition of handchimes, descending marts and LV sections will engage listeners throughout. Bass ringers will love that there are many ‘Rung’ passages in both the bells and chimes. A brief break from the unrelenting tempo features an introspective handchimes section plus some abrupt dynamic changes that will challenge ringers. This well-formed and wonderfully crafted work is a ‘must-have’ for the Bronze level ensembles! 163 measures.
