Medium/Advanced Duet for Keyboard Percussion
by Aaron Locklear
Instrumentation: Celeste*, Vibraphone, Marimba—(low C)
*Glockenspiel may be used as a substitution.
While created primarily out of improvisation, Aaron Locklear’s In the Fog explores two areas of growth in his compositional style: the use of mathematically deduced rhythmic patterns, as well as the use of intervallic symmetry within a tonal context. This collaboration of improvisatory and mathematical material creates a sophisticated inner structure housed within a tuneful casing of easy listening. As with all of his pieces, the title is drawn from his season of life during the writing process. While not written with a concrete program in mind, Aaron believes his life experiences during that time naturally found a way to manifest in the music.
