Description

Our first international collaboration, Blue Motion is an exciting new piece for percussion duo by British composer and percussionist, Stephen Whibley. It premiered in the United Kingdom in summer of 2006 by the exciting new percussion duo Maraca2 from Birmingham, UK.

The 9-minute work has a great feel of drive and momentum with pulse remaining constant from start to finish. With great contrast between the soft spacious sections and the impelling rhythmic grooves, the piece demands coordination between hands and feet and energetic communication between the two performers. Blue Motion is a challenging performance piece of virtuosity, vivacity, virility, vibrancy, vitality, and versatility.


Performed by the Maraca2 percussion duo.

Instrumentation

  • Vibraphone
  • 2 marimbas—(1) low A, (1) low C
  • Drums (2 floor toms, kick drum with double bass pedal)
  • Cymbals (hi-hat with remote pedal, sizzle cymbal, 2 splash cymbals, China cymbal)
  • Accessories (shaker, caxixi, afuche/cabasa, triangle)
