Great Wall

This piece is a 6 minute wall of sound coming from the marimba – all apparently sounding like rolls, but many patterns are really “quasi-rolls” or repeated figurations that sustain the sound of the marimba with a rhythmic drive.

A roll is a roll is a roll. (er…was that roll or rose?). Except when it isn’t, and only sounds like it. This piece is a 6 minute wall of sound coming from the marimba – all apparently sounding like rolls, but many patterns are really “quasi-rolls” or repeated figurations that sustain the sound of the marimba with a rhythmic drive. A vaguely Asian tune is treated to variations, and like the Great Wall itself, eventually fades into nothingness.
