Programme Notes / Performance Details :Bar Hopping was commissioned by the Composers Guild of New Jersey for Peter Jarvis. It is a short scherzando movement for solo vibraphone based on an irregular pattern of slowly chiming intervals. At the beginning, and occasionally later on, these intervals are heard by themselves, but for the most part they are woven into a variety of more elaborate textures, all based on a family of voicings of a single seven-note chord. Although the form of the piece is quite free, in its broadest outlines the music moves from a fast opening (preceded by a slow introduction), to a central slow section, to a lively conclusion, as the materials of the composition become more and more condensed. - John Link
