Howard Hersh – Juke (2013)

● Two marimbas

Duration: 5 minutes Composer’s Note:

Juke is scored for two marimbas and was composed in 2013. Like runners on the field, its performers use sudden shifts and unexpected moves – as sportswriter writer Brian Josephs says, “twitch, step, fake” – to help juke each other, and hopefully, their listeners.
