Belly Buttons (2015)
This is a virtuoso work for marimba and drum set. It was written for Marco Schirripa (marimba) and Anthony DiBartolo (drum set)m who premiered it at ZMF2015 at Rutgers University in New Jersey.
I consider it the logical extension of Incoming (drum set and marimba - 2002) and Outgoing (marimba, piano, timpani and two percussion - 2011). A belly button can be either an "inny" or an "outy" which is therefore the title of this work. There is a quote from the music from the Woody Woodpecker cartoons, if you can catch it!
The recording contained herein is an mp3 from the Sibelius file, using Sibelius 6 Essential sounds.
