Short Ride – two OPTIONAL keyboard musicians:

  • Synthesizer I: performs on keyboard sampler
  • Synthesizer II: performs on keyboard sampler

The two keyboard parts should be synthesizers, or keyboard samplers, with a bright brassy sound.

General Sound Reinforcement Notes:

The synthesizer players should not be amplified through a main house loudspeaker system. The keyboard sampler sounds should be amplified through a keyboard combination amplifier and should seem “acoustic” within the context of the orchestra.
