Description

Rise and shine for Alarm Clock by Kyle H. Peters. Starting the piece with a flourish on notes and brief moments of reflection, Peters expertly captures the essence of the waking up and enjoying the morning. The bustling and weightless nature of the piece paints a clear image of waking up well rested and ready for the day. In the second half of the piece, Alarm Clock transitions into a reflective and playful linear passage that invokes the joy of taking in the early morning hours. To close the piece, Peters sends the performer and audience off to begin their day.

Peters has composed Alarm Clock as a med-advanced piece to focus primarily on double lateral and linear sticking combinations. This provides the performer with opportunities to craft their fluidity and expressiveness across the instrument as they craft musical lines and gestures. 

Alarm Clock is playable on a 4.3-octave (low A) marimbas and works well as a short feature piece for concerts, auditions, or technical study.

Alarm Clock ships as a printed, professionally bound score, and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or tablet viewing.

Instrumentation

Marimba — low A
