A quartet for piano, glockenspiel (+bass drum), vibraphone, and marimba
slowly, like the push and pull of the tides
shimmering, like light reflecting through shallow water
smooth, like small ripples of waves over a bottomless sea
deep, like the vastness of the ocean floor
singing, like a wisp of wind over the surface of the sea
soothing, like the consistency of crashing waves
This work finds inspiration in the words of Tom Marshall:
A song I heard the ocean singTom Marshall
A shining light in darkness deep
I prayed a prayer into the tide
And both they soothed me in my sleep
Composed for the UCF New Music Ensemble.
