Fractalia (2011)

6 minutes

4 players

Instrumentation: eight toms, two 4.3 marimbas

Program Note: Aspects of minimalism, electronica and Taiko drumming can be found throughout Fractalia. The piece is a sonic representation of fractals, geometric shapes exponentially grown from copies of their predecessors. The kaleidoscopic effects within Fractalia are created by developing rhythmic and melodic motifs that are then shared between the players. –Taylor Ambrosio Wood
