Duet for Marimba and Multi-Percussion




My concept for Desert Wood was to explore new combinations of sounds for the marimba in a duo setting with instruments such as the doumbek, cajon, glockenspiel, and metal instruments like cymbals and gongs, etc. The imagery of the music includes Middle Eastern inspired grooves combined with a contemporary marimba vocabulary. The intended result was an earthy musical dialogue with character, passion and drive.

-Mark Ford
