Percussion Project

Ok, so, I sat down today to figure out exactly what I was doing for this percussion project, but I looked at the sheet from the website and was confused. Are we only allowed to do either a multiple percussion solo: a piece to be played by one person with multiple instruments, or a piece for a percussion ensemble with a minimum of 8 instruments? In other words, we can't have a piece with three instuments being played at the same time by three different people? If anyone could clarify, it would be greatly appreciated.

If you want three instruments played, you need one person playing them. If you want three people playing, you need them to play at least eight different instruments. This is fairly easy to do, though, if you think about the great number of auxiliary percussion instruments that can easily be placed near or mounted with the larger ones.
