Postcards from New Zealand for solo marimba (5 oct.)
[Recording coming soon!]
This piece was the first piece I ever composed for marimba. The name and main theme of the
piece is derived from a live show that I was tasked to compose original music for, of which this
theme never made the final cut. In 2013, my family and I travelled to New Zealand and I was
fortunate enough to experience the beautiful mountain ranges and lush greenery in person.
Thus piece’s soaring melodic lines are a reflection of this, encapsulating an inner peace that
only nature can provide.
Postcards from New Zealand was premiered in a livestream concert ‘Defying Gravity Flies Solo’
by Joey Eng on the 21st of April, 2020 at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts.
