Bascule -- marimba & cajón (music score)

A BASCULE is a drawbridge. The metaphor seemed appropriate for this piece, as it contrasts the high and low ranges of the marimba and cajón before finally bringing the full ranges together.

Bascule

DURATION: 7 minutes

PROGRAM NOTE:

A Bascule is a drawbridge. The metaphor seemed appropriate for this piece, as it contrasts the

high and low ranges of the marimba and cajón before finally bringing the full ranges together.

PERFORMANCE NOTES:

1. The marimba part is written for a 4-octave instrument.

2. The notation for the cajón demonstrates the placement of the hands on the instrument. The

notes on the ledger line below the staff are the low bass tone, and the notes above the staff will

be the very top (with finger tips). Otherwise the height on the staff are general guidelines.

3. The “slap mallets” refer to Balter Emil Richards slap mallets. If unavailable, rutes would make

acceptable substitutes.

Score engraved by the composer in Lilypond.
