Programme Notes / Performance Details :

In August of 2005 a hurricane by the name of Katrina hit the southern coast of the United States. It left in its wake thousands of people dead, and many more without homes. In New Orleans, where 80% of the city was flooded, many of the poor and elderly unable to escape or be rescued were never saved. This piece is dedicated to them.

Performance notes

The motor on the vibraphone should be on as slowly as possible. For the sake of clarity, most of the pedal marks have been left off. The piece should be played as legato as possible. Any special pedaling are marked and the use of mallet dampening should be used to control the movement of single notes within the harmony. The choice of mallets is left to the performer, but they should be medium soft- medium. Accidentals refer only to notes within the same measure and within the same octave.
