Dark-Roasted Skies Etude for Marimba or Vibraphone

(2018)

Isaac Pyatt


Dark-Roasted Skies was the first of works inspired by coffee. This piece begins with a simple motive, which I originally plucked out on a guitar, and develops through gives different sections, recognizable by their register differences and the individual motives that develop. The result is a soothing pseudo-etude, which may be transposed for any instrument with a range of at least 3 octaves, which invokes a state of floating, like clouds across the sky.
