Two In A Funk

For marimba duet

Murray Houllif was born in 1948. With more than 200 published books, solos and ensemble compositions, the music of Murray Houllif is performed all over the world.

Dedicated to virtuoso percussionists Steve Paysen and Dominic Donato, this rollicking, mostly 4/4 marimba duet is written in a rock-bluesy style and develops an 8-note recurring theme. The tempo marking is quarter note equals 88 and there are mostly 16th notes, 16th note triplets and syncopation. The performers use two mallets while playing single-note lines as well as double stops. Approx. 3 minutes in length playable by high school or college students. Funk and fun!
