Until Dawn (4.3 Octave Version)

Language: 한국어, 中文

Year: 2019, Rev. 2023
Difficulty: Advanced
Duration: About 5 Minutes
Price: $21.23 USD
Instrument: 4.3 Octave Adaptation (From the original 5.0 octave edition, sold separately)

This version of Until Dawn, adapted for players who might only have access to a 4.3 octave instrument, is slightly abridged compared to the original. There are fewer difficult reaches, and thus it requires less stamina to perform; however, one can easily move between this version and the original without having to re-learn much of the piece.

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.
