After finishing my studies at the Eastman School of Music in May of 2015, I composed this piece drawing on my new career direction towards film scoring. The electronic track’s orchestration sounds like a Hollywood movie’s action sequence, and this piece is essentially the marimba’s ‘blockbuster hit’. With limited written dynamic control, the performers are encouraged to not only be free in their interpretation, but also let the electronic track guide them in their performance on the piece. Nevertheless, this piece at is core only has one goal: to be EPIC.
