I wrote about 5 minutes of music for an indoor percussion ensemble. Instruments include xylophone, marimba, vibraphone, bells, chimes, keyboard, timpani, snare, tenor drum, bass drum, and a boatload of auxiliary percussion.

I'm the one in the green lantern shirt talking at the beginning. High-five to my mom for recording it.

Thought some of you might enjoy hearing this personal project I invested my time and energy into this past year... I like local, I like high school stuff.

Fantastic stuff.  You know I always enjoy seeing and hearing other peoples' musical projects. 
Sometimes I wonder if there was ever a time a last-place Olympic diver decided before their final dive, "I'm in last place, I have nothing to lose, I might as well have some fun with this" then yell "CANNONBALL!" from the diving board before launching into a cannonball.

As someone who was in a highschool percussion ensemble for 4 years, that was delightful to watch. Thanks for posting it here.

That was lovely! Nice work!

I didn't recognize all the musical pieces, but it was well done!

Was it all original, what you wrote? Or adapted?
Just Greg, thanks.

It's completely original. Save for about 4 measures halfway in that borrows from the Zelda II dungeon music.
