Description

Flawed Perfection was composed by Dustin Schulze to convey the idea that both beauty and angst, while contradictory, can often exist together. Schulze’s compositional style includes aspects of groove-based minimalism and lyrical simplicity. 

In this four-minute marimba solo composed for an experienced intermediate performer, idiomatic 4-mallet techniques and accent patterns exist to serve music which is focused and light, yet earnest. It also calls for the unique addition of a foot pedal with a shaker which, when employed midway through the piece, adds a new textural foundation on which the melodic statements are framed.

Flawed Perfection is professionally printed and shipped as a bound folio.

 

Instrumentation

  • Marimba—low F
  • Kick pedal (with shaker attachment)
