MANI.MATTA

EX[TENSION] WAS BORN FROM THE IDEA OF LEAVING THE CLASSICAL REPERTOIRE FOR THE MARIMBA, WHICH IS ALREADY OVERCROWDED AND OVERPLAYED, AND TO EXTEND AND MAXIMIZE THE INSTRUMENT AND ITS SOUND, THROUGH THE INCORPORATION OF NEW EXTENDED TECHNIQUES AND INSTRUMENTS:

 

A MARIMBA THAT IS ALWAYS FIXED, TO WHICH DIFFERENT COMPLEMENTS ARE ADDED, IN ORDER TO BROADEN ITS SOUND ESPECTRUM. 

 

THIS IS DONE IN THREE DIFFERENT WAYS, WITH EACH PIECE OF THE PROGRAM: ARQUITECTURAS DE LA SOMBRA GIVES A WIDE NEW SPECTRUM OF LOW METAL SOUNDS (WICH, SURPRISINGLY, FIT PERFECTLY WITH THE SOUND OF THE MARIMBA WOOD). MANI.MATTA COMPLETELY OPENS UP THE SOUND POSSIBILITIES OF THE MARIMBA, THROUGH THE MODIFICATION OF ITS SOUND BOTH WITH THE HANDS, NEW WAYS OF PLAYING IT AND THE USE OF LOG DRUMS AND A WOODBLOCK. IDEM ALMOST LITERALLY EXTENDS THE MARIMBA BY ADDING 11 WOODBLOCKS, FORMING A SEPARATE MELODIC LINE.
