Solo Marimba 4 minutes
I suppose that composition is by its very nature the completing of a puzzle. Fragments of an Incomplete Puzzle takes this idea as the core of its foundation. Structured primarily around an octatonic scale the idea was to see what could be created from a simple two bar rhythmic pattern. This pattern and scale serve as the fragments of this puzzle. These pieces build upon themselves creating a clearer melodic and rhythmic picture as time moves forward until the picture comes together briefly. Then the puzzle is systematically deconstructed piece-by-piece just as it was put together.
Head back to the music catalog to take a look at more pieces.
