Sammut's Four Rotations have become some of the most frequently performed works for solo marimba. And this new arrangement re-imagines the catchy rhythms, memorable melodies and swinging, jazzy harmonies of the original - for marimba and string quintet.
This piece attempts to create a kind of wavering sustain by tasking each marimba with a similar-but-different part in the same register. That sound inspired the name of the work. The title is also meant to hint at the two most important musical forces in the piece: meters and mediants.
Se-Mi's Go2 mallet is a light-weight (34 grams per stick) medium-hard model that works with her impressionistic and contemporary repertoire to enhance the graceful virtuosity of her approach to the marimba.
A versatile, durable mallet designed for contemporary music that has sharp dynamic contrast, timbre contrast and high volume requirements. Excellent as a multi-percussion mallet for cymbals, small gongs and light drum work. Rattan handles.
