I just finished transcribing the percussion score of Political Mother Choreographer’s Cut.

Now it is all documented in case anyone forgets anything.

It is quite amazing to see how much information was memorized by all the drummers in the show. The full score ends after 68 pages!!! Hard work but totally worth it.

Can´t wait to perform it again in January in Berlin and I really hope there will be more.
