As a percussionist myself I am particularly partial to composing for percussion instruments, of which the marimba is but one. Marimba are incredibly expensive so I thought "what fun!" if we crammed as many players as is sensible onto just one or two instruments. If we did that, how would they avoid hitting each other, each other's sticks, and getting in each other's way? Easy - limit them to a certain number of notes.
And that's what I did.
Six notes each. You'd never guess it (heard the preview yet?). And no-one gets in anyone else's way, despite there being THREE players on each instrument.
So, six players with six notes each. The six minutes thing is purely accidental - not intentional. Really? Yes, really.
This piece is so worth your pennies and I'm really pleased you're considering it. Please don't delay and download it today. It's awesome. THANK YOU.
