  • Notes & Instrumentation

    Written to fill a void in accessible duet literature for keyboard percussion, Songs from the Infinite Plane is, in essence, a song book for vibraphone & marimba. Each melodically-driven duet is approximately 2 minutes and could be used in several different ways – in private lessons, studio class, or even recitals.

    Program Notes
    Commissioned by a consortium of performers and educators organized by John Kilkenny and Daniel Heagney, Songs from the Infinite Plane is a collection of fifteen intermediate duets for vibraphone and marimba. My primary compositional goal in writing these pieces was to think more melodically. The end result was a “song book.” In many of the duos, the vibraphone carries the melody, but not always. The marimba’s function is mostly harmonic and rhythmic throughout. There are several pieces where I reversed the duty of the two instruments with good results. A good practice would be to learn five duos for a performance. An advanced piece called The Mandela Effect is included as a bonus at the end of the collection.
