untitled, for marimba + electronics
The piece has at this point evolved to include some percussion elements as well as marimba. The electronics used are sourced largely from vocal samples that are then chopped, pitched and stretched. It is percussive in nature, emphasizing a back and forth hocket-like relationship between the marimba and the electronics, with each part filling in gaps and creating pointillistic gestures that run throughout. Extended techniques on the marimba imitate and compliment the electronic sounds.
