Until Dawn is the first composition for 5 octave marimba that I’ve written and was the winner of the 2019 Percussive Arts Society International Composition Contest. For me, the piece is a departure from my previous works, which I consider as side projects and never serious. I have no formal education in composition, so entering a composition competition marks the end of music as a hobby, and the ‘dawn’ of studying music seriously going into my first year of university. This piece is quite difficult, and is aimed at advanced-level players with proficiency in double laterals as well as mallet independence.

*The majority of the piece (the whole first 3 minutes of the video) only goes down to a low F. The last quarter of the piece has a few notes that go down, but in general can be adapted for a low F or low E marimba with little issue.
