It's About Time


This three movement work was specially written for the rhythmic talents of Peter Gillespie, marimbist.  The three movements are harmonically and melodically intertwined with each exploring different nuances of the musical materials. Melody and base lines are interchangeable while different interpretations of the harmonic structures ensures continual variation.    

The three movements each exploit different combinations of rhythmic groupings of two and three, producing off-beat accents and unexpected changes of pulse.

Instrumentation:  Marimba and Piano

Duration:  10.5 minutes
