Detailed Description

Meanwhile in a Parallel Universe composed by Jim Casella. For marimba and percussion ensemble. Advanced. 54 pages. Duration 8 minutes, 40 seconds. Published by Tapspace Publications (TA.TSPCE-62).

Meanwhile in a Parallel Universe is an energetic new work by Jim Casella which features a virtuosic solo marimbist accompanied by 8 mulipercussionists. Composed in three connected sections, these episodic movements are unique in personality, yet closely related through their harmonic and rhythmic DNA.

The composer writes, "Meanwhile in a Parallel Universe" is based on the idea that our brief time on this earth can have any number of outcomes depending on the relationships we build, how present we are, and the decisions we make. As our stories evolve, infinite possibilities are created. The result is an adventure filled with both uncertainty and wonder."

The solo marimba part is colorful and challenging, employing frequent use of triple laterals, independent techniques, and flourishing runs. The accompaniment stands largely on its own, allowing ensembles to effectively rehearse the piece without the soloist being present.
