Onwards and Sideways
About the work
The title says it all. Rather than moving onwards and upwards, the piece develops sideways from the first main idea, comprising 3 distinct sections of contrasting character and different marimba techniques. It represents someone trying to develop in different directions, be it in different musical genres or entirely independent walks of life (like many of the CoMA members!).
First Performance: CoMA Summer School 2006
There is also a piano score.
