Sedimental Structures (1998)

solo marimba
Sound Clip - partial


1998. This piece was commissioned by and composed for marimbist Robert VanSice. It is structured in four main sections. Each section is based to a degree on the material contained in the very first measure. Sometimes material is derived through a variety of structural manipulations, and other times through a more loosely organized process of transformation. The piece seemed to have an organic or earthy quality, and therefore the use of the word sedimental in the title. Recorded: "Astral Projections", Resonator Records ( 00042.
