Home is where the heart is.

This is a piece about...well, home. What it means to us, what it can and can't be, and how it feels to come back to it. The loss of one's home, no matter how it came about, can be a devastating blow, and finding a new home can make many things in our life right. It is the most intimate space we have, our castle, a warm bed, a familiar face. And sometimes it's not even a place at all, but a feeling, a person, an open door.

'Home is' is a piece of intermediate to advanced difficulty for 4.3 octave marimba, well suited for a recital or a competition. Melodical, uplifting passages in the beginning and end are contrasted with a more groove-oriented, minimalist section in the middle. It presents different technical challenges, but it also gives the player a lot of room to show his or her musicality. Because of the transition from two to four mallets, this accessible piece generates a nice surprise for an audience that is unfamiliar with the instrument.
