Very cool! Two comments:
1. I wanted to hear more! You had a nice groove going and I didn't want it to stop when it did.
2. Jazz players don't play C trumpets. The only instruments built today to get the smoky jazz sound are in Bb.
I agree. The sound of the Marimba is beautiful.
The piece is very nice, and there is a touch of "indeterminacy" with the ad libitum repetitions.
Although the rhythm in triplets is persistent it's not tiring. Not sure if some section using other rhythm would make it better...
The last months I have some problems with falling asleep. I always listen to baroque music, because it gives me rest.
I suddenly got the idea to compose a simple piece so that I can easily fall asleep.
For me Marimba sound very dreamy.
The repetitions can be repeated as much as the musicians want it.
The piece is called ''Welterusten,'' which is Dutch for Good Night.
Tell me what you think!
