What Is This All About? Getting the music out!
This is about setting up a convenient, free library website for musicians, especially percussionists to discover new and exciting music with electronic accompaniment. Creating a crowd-sourced library for others to peruse makes the discovery of this idiom so much easier, and convenient by listing it in one space but quickly guiding you to the media, and ultimately the composer or the publisher, whomever controls the copyright.
But that’s just the beginning.
It’s also about providing ALL, or at least much of the information involved with a single composition. I grew weary searching for this music back in 2001. Not much was on YouTube and it was tedious to find. On many publisher websites one could typically find descriptions such as “Percussion & Electronics.” What does that even mean?😩 it lead to so many more needless inquiries.
So here, in the library you will find descriptive details on what is involved with the electronic technology, but also a full instrumentation list and links to immediately listen or contact the composer or publisher. This library is not to exclude anyone, but it is definitely to include everyone: all genders, all nationalities, and everything else.
Join the Mission!
By connecting musicians, percussionists, composers, and publishers, this content-based website aims to facilitate and increase the public performance of classical solos utilizing electronics.

Speed up the process for curating your next performance, then engage directly with the composer!
