Programme Notes / Performance Details :Scored for two-mallet marimba (5.0 octave), Caleidoscópio was inspired by my study of the coordinational independence method developed by Jose Gramani called "Ritmica" and a series of courses on the subject taught by his protege Rogerio Boccato. This piece was the second work in a series of two-mallet concert pieces.
