Description

Chad Heiny’s Elements not only serves as a programmatic piece representing natural elements through musical devices such as texture, phrasing, style, and tonality, it also functions as a study in the “elements of music,” like rhythm, harmony, melody, time signature, and dynamic range. Because the players are sharing a single marimba, a high level of cohesion and intimacy can be achieved in performance, especially when great care is taken in the selection of mallets. 

Included with a purchase of this piece are four ambient audio tracks (optional), one for each movement. These tracks provide a perfect backdrop for the spirit and character of each movement and will engage the performers as well as the audience.

Instrumentation

Marimba 4.3-octave (low A)*

Amplification system (if performing with included audio accompaniment tracks)

*Shared marimba
