Composer Lynn Job has written a new marimba + electronics piece entitled “Woods Walker”. This piece will be performed at PASIC 2010 this year in Indianapolis, Indiana by Dr. Aaron Ragsdale. I just learned that this commission is seeking 5 more marimbists to donate to the commission. I have recently joined this commission myself after reviewing the sample pages from the score.
The great thing about this particular commission is the number of things that you get for participating:
Your name on the score, a copy of the full score, a separate marimba part, a performance CD (stage ready), a Demo CD, 2 year exclusive ability to perform the work, free publicity for life and a number of other gifts.
For more information please visit the commission web site for more details. Time is running out on joining (they want to close the commission this summer) so move fast! This could be a great graduation present (or in my case a Father’s Day present) for your favorite marimbist!
