Description

Starfall by James Vilseck magically captures the wonder one has while staring up into the sky and appreciating the beauty of the stars. The piece combines many simple patterns to create one homogenous canvas, similar to the way each individual star helps create the night sky. Utilizing complex but alluring harmonies and quick rhythmic patterns juxtaposed against long melodic arcs, Starfall effortlessly transports the listener and performer to an ethereal setting.

Starfall features two low-A marimbas (one 5-octave optional), two vibraphones, a choose-your-own tuned metallic instrument and an optional piano. The metallic percussion part presents the opportunity to select any tuned metallic percussion instrument to be used throughout or a variety of instruments. While the piano part is optional, it aids in filling out chords and providing rich bass tones for the ensemble.

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

2 vibraphones

2 marimbas — (1) 4-octave, (1) low A*

Metallic percussion (any combination of chimes, crotales, glockenspiel, aluphone, etc.)

Piano (optional)

*optional 5-octave
