    This impressive marimba duet uses the unique interaction between the two instruments to "blur" and create a dense web of counterpoint in which the listener is not particularly drawn to either voice.

    Instrumentation
    Two 5-octave Marimbas

    Program Notes
    I composed Blur after seeing a fantastic video by the Israeli percussion duo PercaDu, performing a work called Octabones. I was struck by the dense texture that was created using only two 5-octave marimbas, and the unique interaction of the two voices. Blur is based on interlocking chordal and melodic ideas that are drawn from extended harmonies throughout. The A section that returns twice to create a quasi rondo form is the most dense relying on a vertical method of construction, while the two sections that exist in between are more linear in nature. The title reflects my intent to create a work where the two performers “blur” together to create a dense web of counterpoint where the listener is not particularly drawn to either voice. This composition is dedicated to Jim Petercsak.
