Rip Tide

Technique – 1. played 8th notes in both hands in unison at 1/4 note = 150bpm… need to start pushing tempo (even without moving this was difficult due to lack of endurance). 2. still with unison 8ths, I maintained a static note in LH and improvised RH in chromatic motion – and the opposite direction – at 1/4 note = 150bpm. 3. still with unison 8ths, tried to have both hands improvising chromatic lines in opposing directions.

Mirror of the Navigation of the Western Sea (Mvt III of this same marimba piece) – a graphic score (improvised, possibly fixed marimba)

Improvisation on score – limited myself to only 2-mallets, and did not add anything to marimba.
