Programme Notes / Performance Details :

 One of four 4-mallets solos in the collection Out of the Woodwork:

"Titled after the month in which it was written (May 2016), May as Well was composed in just a few days on the composer’s 4.3-octave marimba. After the opening theme was composed, the remainder of the piece fell into place on it’s own. The month of May has always evoked playful, young, and spirited feelings in the mind of the composer. These feelings were present during the compositional process and, as a result, are evident in the completed product. Also evident is the composer’s groove-oriented touch, which, in this piece, was influenced from pieces such as Footpath by Dave Samuels." (www.chadfloyd.com)
