Focused mainly on the marimba and vibraphone, the soloist is also called on to play a multi percussion set up including congas, bongos, toms, and snare drum. The first two movements are highly improvisatory in sound while the final movement's 16th note patterns lend it a frolicking perpetual motion effect.
