I also like minimalism, so, now and then, I put it in practice, just for fun: tonal, modal, phasings, additions, substractions, double valor of notes, modulation note by note, etc....

Aw, this was great! Minimalistic, yes, but also really effective, and it's great to see bits and pieces of your style in it. That's really awesome! Good length with a good idea throughout. Your tubular bells player might have a bit of a boring time, though.
Just a note; the playback did it as it would, but in real life, the marimba glissandos would have F naturals in them rather than F-sharps. You probably know that, that's just something that deviates from the playback.

Thanks Monarcheon

You know I like the explosion of 20th century styles, and when I study any of them, I always write some pieces.

This is "classical" minimalism. Many people thing minimalism is to write a couple of phrases and repet and repeat. Well, I think it's more than that...

Yes, I know that in the marimba glissando, the F must be natural, perhaps I shoud chande the accidental in the beginning of those measures... As a rapid gliss, I don't think it's important if the F is natuarl... Besides, que next section is in D dorian (so F natural).

Fascinating. I really like your take on minimalist techniques. I have tried a little writing in that style before, but never enough to make anything presentable. All the different techniques you can find in a minimalist piece are put to really good use here. Great job.
