Tsoof writes predominantly music for percussion and percussion ensembles.
Composing for SoundStruck, Tsoof has written and experimented with body percussion and novelty percussion music. His works for body percussion have been performed in front of audiences at the Queensland Conservatorium as well as on ABC Radio’s Afternoon Program with Kelly Higgins Devine.
Tsoof has also experimented with composition combined with visual mediums. In a series of compositions inspired by synesthesia and the Blue Man Group, these videos went on to start his drumming ensemble SoundStruck.
Having played in percussion ensembles from a young age, this style of music and instrumentation is commonly filled by standard instrumentation being used in the same way. Tsoof’s music catalogue is filled with creative instrumentation such as body percussion, harmonic whirlies, pieces for only auxilary instruments, as well as compositions that can be used for ensembles of any size with part doubling.
The aim of ensemble music is to allow students and ensembles to discover groove and collaborate together to develop their skills. To do all of this and inspire students to commit time and effort to improve their ensemble.
Check out the Music Store to look at compositions for your ensemble!
With quirky titles, infectious grooves, cool effects and whacky instrumentations, you’ll find something to suit an ensemble of every level and size.
Tsoof is now also accepting commission requests. Commissions will involve a collaborative process tailored to your chosen instrumentation, ensemble, budget and vision for the music.
For examples, you can look at Fonque, commissioned in 2022 by Zak Seonario for his graduating recital.
Appreciate you and your music so much, would absolutely love to collaborate again when the opportunity arises. Keep composing and playing man you bring so much to the music world! Thanks again, thoroughly enjoyed my first experience commissioning a composition. – Zak Seonario
