Posted on 15 December 2016 - 03:30 PMI'll share music that I write/record/perform in this thread for you all to listen to or hate on or touch yourself to or whatever you people do with music nowadays.
First off, here's a recording of me playing David Maslanka's "Variations on Lost Love" for 4-mallet marimba. It's quite long (14 minutes) but well worth a serious listen to. The whole piece is quite a journey to play and listen to. I'd recommend having some good speakers, because marimba recordings tend to sound really bad through phone speakers and stuff like that. https://soundcloud.com/jacob-aaaaa/variations-on-lost-love-david-maslanka-performed-by-jacob-arnold
Next up, a recording of me playing Pius Cheung's "Nian 2" for multi-percussion. It's also fairly long, but it's loud and fast, and played on a huge number of different things. In this piece I play 4 gongs, a bass drum, a kick drum, 2 bongos, 2 toms, a china cymbal, and a splash cymbal. https://soundcloud.com/jacob-aaaaa/nian-2-pius-cheung-performed-by-jacob-arnold
I'll post more stuff later once it's uploaded. I don't really expect many people to bother listening to this stuff but I thought I'd put it on here just in case some of you Badlino players were interested.
you are all required to listen :o)))
