Music for Kalimba and Ukulele


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

This is something I've been working on for my composition lessons. The goal is for it to be a piece that could be played fairly easily by people who don't really know how to play the instruments involved (although I hope it would be fun for professional kalimba and ukulele players as well).

If you're interested in playing it, just let me know. I'd love to get some feedback on how well the score communicates.

I like "guided improvisations" like this and have used them now and then as parts of bigger pieces. I think it would be fun if you could find pairs of experienced musicians who have never picked up a kalimba or a ukelele before (and maybe have never met each other either) to play this cold with no preparation and video record them. Also, I'd remove the long silences, which don't add anything, although they could be expanded into an expression of defiance on the part of performers who don't want to play kalimba or ukelele.
