|Programme Notes / Performance Details :
Blue Motion, by Stephen Whibley is a work for percussion duo, commissioned by Tapspace Percussion Publications, USA and Maraca2 Percussion Duo.
This composition for two marimbas, vibraphone, hi-hat, kit bass drum, floor tom-toms, cymbals and small hand percussion is essentially a fusion of minimalism with jazz and latin harmonies and rhythms. The 9 minute piece has, as the title suggests, a great feel of drive and momentum with the pulse remaining constant from start to finish. With great contrast between hands & feet, and ensemble and energy required of the two players, Blue Motion is a challenging performance piece of virtuosity, vivacity, virility, vibrancy, vitality and versatility!
Extra Performance Notes: Triangle will work best with a pre-mounted beater to avoid mallet change.B Otherwise, triangle parts should be played with shaft of mallet.
