Watch the Melting Glaciers is an intermediate level composition for two-mallet marimba and piano. It utilizes the polyrhythm of four over three, which is also found in the speech cadence of the title itself.

Delineated in seven sections, Glaciers is a programmatic composition loosely constructed around the subject of global warming. Built on a major/minor tonality, it has a sound that is both accessible and contemporary. The element of improvisation is employed in one section, and improvisational suggestions are offered in the performance notes.

This piece comes as a professionally printed and bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.
