PROGRAM NOTE

 

Carbon White was written in 2016 as a thank you gift to Christopher Whyte, director of percussion studies at Western Oregon University. The piece explores a short motive that was pervasive to my ears in the summer of 2016 before I arrived in Iowa. The structure of the piece conveys the feeling of a dreamlike fantasy that served to entertain my obsession with the acoustical beauty of solo marimba.

Written for percussionist, Christopher Whyte.
