Description

In My Mother’s Garden, for vibraphone trio by Robert McClure, was written to symbolize the organic and peaceful moods and imagery of an English garden. Employing both minimalist and postminimalist techniques over which the theme is presented and developed, the piece uses bowing techniques to introduce the theme before players switch to mallets.

In 2009 the piece was choreographed for two dancers by Claire Hancock. This inspired an ongoing collaboration between Hancock, the composer, and Ashley Bowman of the Art.if.Act Dance Project.

 

Instrumentation

  • 3 vibraphones (each with mallets and bows)

Shared Recordings

Performed by Joseph Menditto, Inez Rodriguez, and Jose Garza
