to for hit with for percussion duo and electronics (2011)

This piece started with the scale made to highlight some of the quirky pitch omissions in the hammer dulcimer. After grooving on that scale pattern for a while, the piece breaks it down to reveal a more gentle harmonic underpinning. A long, slow marimba melody emerges with a few mbira punctuations. Finally, the scale erupts again in full force and leads the piece to its conclusion.
