Prepared Marimba, Part 2

A few months ago, I wrote a blog about my original sketches and compositional process for "Never Never (Is)land for prepared marimba".

Last year, I began a video series based on these sketches.

The series focuses on the sound experimentation from 2008, as well as some more recent discoveries this year. Currently the episodes that are published on my YouTube channel include:

1) Wood: Bamboo and dowels

2) Seed pods

3) Aluminum foil on marimba bars

4) Aluminum foil on resonators

There are more to come, as well as some short etudes.

I am passionate about discovering new sounds. If you would like to share your own ideas on prepared percussion instruments, please visit this page.
