  • Notes & Instrumentation

    Demonstrating an extreme economy of space, Tight Quarters is scored for four players on a single, shared xylophone, with an optional glockenspiel part playable by one to three players, again on a single instrument. Alternating between composite arpeggiations, simple melodies harmonized in parallel motion, and ensemble scale figures, this chamber ensemble work is captivating in its simplicity and an excellent opportunity to consider and workshop ensemble choreography.

    Program Notes
    Demonstrating an extreme economy of space, Tight Quarters is scored for four players on a single, shared xylophone, with an optional glockenspiel part playable by one to three players, again on a single instrument. Alternating between composite arpeggiations, simple melodies harmonized in parallel motion, and ensemble scale figures, this chamber ensemble work is captivating in its simplicity and an excellent opportunity to consider and workshop ensemble choreography. For a larger ensemble, the xylophone parts may be doubled on marimba and the optional glockenspiel part may be doubled on vibraphone. If a xylophone or glockenspiel is unavailable, the piece may be performed on marimba and optional vibraphone. With the exception of xylophone 4 in measures 22-39, all eighth notes and longer and all repeated sixteenth notes on a single pitch should be performed with one hand. A graduated set of medium to hard yarn, cord, or rubber mallets is recommended for the xylophone. Hard plastic mallets are recommended for the glockenspiel.
