New Solo Vibraphone Piece!!

This is a solo vibe piece Tony Miceli commissioned me to write for him. Let me know what you guys think! These are the program notes I wrote for the piece:

This piece was written in April of 2024 upon commission from Tony Miceli, professor at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. While taking private lessons with him, we began experimenting with timbral effects on the vibraphone, and one of my assignments was to write a solo vibraphone piece surrounding this idea. Thus, this piece was born.

M55-accordion frame DIY kit

Because of the many requests to build an accordion frame that I simply cannot fulfill, I have developed the frame into a kind of kit that requires very little DIY skills.
Since shipping longer frame components is very expensive, I have defined all of them in such a way that they should be procurable worldwide using the digital data available in the download.

With the new alternately arranged bar posts, the bars are held so securely that they can be held upside down. Nevertheless, they can be easily removed and replaced.

Original Dampening Etude

This is a piece that I wrote for an assignment in Tony Micelli’s private vibraphone lessons on

I called it “He Laid upon the Ground” because I came up with the melody while I was laying in the floor of a practice room at USM.

You’ll have to forgive the hesitation close to the end, but otherwise, enjoy!
