Nocturne in f minor for Solo Marimba - 5 Min.; 5-Octave-Marimba, 4 mallets, advanced
Nocturne in f minor is my second attempt at nocturnes. It came to me during a sleepless night when numerous ideas and feelings, musical or not, were coursing through my mind sporadically. As such, the music represents an almost schizophrenic state of mind, going in and out of reality and a dream-like state. It is in a way the exact opposite of my first nocturne, which alludes to a peaceful state of mind in the busy city of New York, while this one represents an unsettled state of mind in the quiet city of Eugene, Oregon.
