Rimbadance uses timbral notation for the percussion part, indicating pitches for each percussion instrument in the set-up. After a free, improvisatory opening for the marimba, the vibraphone begins a sixteenth ostinato while the marimba plays fast runs and arpeggios over top. The multiple percussion set-up creates a fascinating dialogue with the marimba throughout the rest of the piece, driving all the way to the end.
Percussion (Vibraphone, Bongos, Timbales, Snare Drum, 2 Low Toms, Kick Bass Drum, Small Tam-Tam, Metal, Sizzle Ride, 2 Log Drums, Temple Blocks, Maracas, 5-octave Marimba)
