Good Night for Marimba

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

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!

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...

Hi Luis,

Thank you for sharing your opinion.
About the triplets: I firstly called the piece ''In Trans'' (In trance), so I inteded the repeating rythm to get in a sort of trance.
Now, because it has to help me to fall asleep, I haven't changed the rythm. 

I am glad you enjoyed it!
