Cody CriswellOklahoma native Cody Criswell is a young composer to watch and listen for! With training as both a percussionist and a composer, he has a keen sense of what works and doesn't for the idiom. Cody has already amassed an impressive portfolio of compositions.

Check out two of them below!

Shattered
Often reflective and tragic, "Shattered" is a two movement marimba solo that is reflective of the tumultuous feelings and emotions the composer experienced during the tragic earthquake in Haiti in 2010. The piece expresses much more than despair, as there is always hope after disaster.

Entanglement
"Entanglement" is a very rhythmic piece in three movements that incorporates percussion instruments of indefinite pitch with the marimba and vibraphone. The piece contains a series of stacked and fragmented motivic ideas, which are constantly recurring in new forms. The piece is pulse driven from beginning to end, which, in addition to the rich harmonic design and unique instrumentation, gives the piece its character.
