Description

Neither Here Nor There was Paul Millette’s attempt to create “beautiful and captivating art using only simple elements.” Indeed, when each mallet part is isolated, it is constructed of very simple musical material. However, when all of the parts are combined, they create rich and complex textures that collectively enhance the piece as a whole. In Millette’s own words, “the piece isn’t happy or sad, programmatic or based entirely on theoretical principles, nor is it meant to convey any specific ideas at all. It is simply meant to be enjoyed.”

Neither Here Nor There is dedicated to Yuesen Yang, Brandon Hettwer, Mitch Geiger, Mitchell Beck, Russell Wharton, and Steven Partida who helped bring Paul’s piece to life.

Instrumentation

Xylophone

Vibraphone

2 marimbas—(1) 4-octave, (1) low F
