Edition Musica Europea
Marimba Solo

Magma was commissioned by Timothy Jones and the percussion department of the University of Nevada Las Vegas.  Although the piece starts very soft and low, just as magma moves slowly, deep under teh earth, it quickly develops into an energetic and powerful structure.  The flow of the music is constantly changing, with "randomly" varied accents and groups of notes, reaching its first climax in the high register, only to immediately cascade down with a thick, rough sound, culminating in a steady rhythmic pattern that gradually grows, transfers itself, and gets interwoven with motifs and structural elements from the beginning of the piece.  My intention was to compose a marimbistic and energetic peice of music, combining contemporary sounds and elements with some idiomatic marimba patterns.  One of my bigger concerns was to try to blance those two compositional elements in order to avoid just another non-stop pattern-based marimba piece.  -Nebojsa Jovan Zivkovic
