||"Eaks Raga" was written by Dennis Lester in 2005. This is a very interesting piece which can be played by almost any percussion instrument. It is for a solo percussion instrument accompanied by a metronome. Performance time is about 2 min. This piece was inspired by Steve Smith explaining his trip to India. On the journey he heard an Indian drummer perform such an exercise where a pattern was modulated from sixteenth notes to quintuples to sixtuples and to septuplets and then to thirtysecond notes.
