by Erin Duke
Instrumentation: 3 marimbas—(2) 4-octave, (1) low E
Written for three marimbas, Satisfraction is a charming and sweet trio that will lighten the mood on any percussion concert needing a breath of fresh air. Erin Duke writes individual lines that are syncopated and repetitive, and that interweave with each other to create a single, unified statement.
While this piece will give players a great study in chamber ensemble communication, its technical demands are relatively limited for intermediate players. In a growing world of heavy, serious percussion literature, Satisfraction will bring some levity to your concert and some satisfaction to audiences.
Satisfraction ships in a professionally printed folio which includes individual parts on CD-ROM.
