Description

International soloist and percussion educator She-e Wu composed Blue Identity for the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Paris and its director Frédéric Macarez. In its original format, it was scored for a marimba soloist with four percussionists. After premiering in Paris in 2002, it received its U.S. premiere at the Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC).

This rendition of Blue Identity has been created specifically for solo marimba. Relentless as it is lyrical, it provides a virtuosic vehicle for advanced players to showcase technical dexterity in a dramatic musical setting.

The solo marimba version is dedicated to the IPEA (International Percussion Education Association) and its annual competition in Shanghai, China in 2019.

The ensemble version of Blue Identity was recorded in 2017 in Kangasala, Finland, and is on the album "HITS" with Osuma Percussion Group and She-e Wu on Alba Records, released in 2018.

Instrumentation

Marimba–5-octave
