Mix 'n' Match ALTOP008

Originally written for a university portfolio in 1998, Mix ‘n’ Match was revised in 2008 for the Greater Gwent Percussion Ensemble to perform in a concert at St. David’s Hall, Cardiff. Scored for two marimbas with two players on each the main idea behind the composition was to explore the marimba’s ability to act as a melodic, rhythmic and harmonic vehicle. The piece consists of a number of short ideas which are initially overlapped by the players and subsequently passed around the different ranges for development. The opening chords return to bookend the work. Although the dynamics are equal throughout it is important that the melodic lines are brought to the forefront.

Instrumentation:
2 marimbas (2 players on each)

Duration: 3 minutes
