Six is a mallet sextet commissioned and premiered by the Eastman School of Music Percussion Ensemble in October, 2012. It is scored for two five octave marimbas, two vibraphones, and two glockenspiel.
The piece reflects the six years I spent at Eastman as a student, and all the special memories I created there. I learned so much about music and life from my teachers and fellow classmates, and am especially fortunate to have met my wife there too.
It is an honor to be commissioned by the Eastman Percussion Ensemble, a group I frequently performed in as a student, under the direction of both John Beck and Michael Burritt.
Musically, Six is inspired by Sigur Rós, an Icelandic rock band known for writing beautiful, simple songs.
