Disentanglement is a mallet trio for two marimbas and a vibraphone. It is also the last piece of music I will write before turning 30, so … that’s something!

After writing a few larger ensembles, I wanted to work on something with limited instrumentation. This expands on a simple idea used very briefly in “The Guardian”, that was used as a transition to the mixed-meter section.

Instrumentation [PDF of Score]:

  • 2 – 4.3 octave marimbas
  • 3 octave vibraphone

I hope you enjoy listening!
