Labyrinth (marimba duet)

Recommended Posts

I've been posting a few works lately to these forums. This'll be the last one I post for a while, since it's the last one in my final composition folio of 8 pieces that I hadn't posted yet.

This piece is basically a re-imagining of the third movement of a previous marimba duet I'd written a few years ago (and posted here), 'Three Sketches for Two Marimbas'. I wouldn't describe this piece as one of the strongest in my folio, maybe because I've listened to it so many times that none of the harmonic movement surprises me any more. I'm still glad I wrote it, though.

My original intention was to find someone I could perform this piece with (I would take marimba 2 and I'd give the other player marimba 1), but that's been harder than I thought - the percussionists at RCS have much less freedom to do their own projects here than they did back in Sydney, and I don't have any friends who own marimbas. Still, I'll keep this piece in the back of my mind, and I'll wait and see if I eventually get some opportunity even to just run it through.

This is super cool. You should be glad to have written it. 
I wasn't as big of a fan of the section at 113 with the tremolos, since I think you lose some of the momentum you've built up. I know the idea is you treat the chord changes as the big rhythm, but the augmentation is slightly lost to me. Maybe it's the MIDI?
There were also some spots with cross-player oblique motion that sounded a little static to me like 99 (F5 - F5), but I really liked listening to this. Congratulations.
