Description

Lisa Ann Marsh’s Changing Winds takes its influence from the turbulence of the fall of 2016, where “from climate change to political upheaval, we [were] confronted with shifts and changes that challenge[d] our stability.” This piece was Lisa’s attempt to show sentiments in a changing world, “ever dynamic, yet always strong and hopeful.’’

Each player in this quartet has an independent role and their musical stories develop as the piece progresses. The uncertainty at the beginning traverses the ambiguous and chaotic, finally coalescing as the four players find their rhythm with one another, creating a portrait of unity and peace out of what was once so tumultuous and unpredictable.

Changing Winds was premiered by the Portland State University Percussion Ensemble on June 16th, 2017 at the Lou Harrison Centennial Festival.

Instrumentation

1 glockenspiel

Xylophone

2 marimbas—(1) low A, (1) low F

Cymbals & gongs (suspended cymbal, crash cymbal, large tam-tam, medium tam-tam)

Accessories (woodblock, mark tree, tambourine, claves, triangle)
