"Concerto" for Solo Marimba and Percussion
comp. by Marc Strobel
Written originaly for piano solo "Pagodes" is a typical piece of "Exotism". Such as Claude Debussy many artists have been influenced by the rich culture of japan and indonesia. After japans re-opening in trade in 1868, japanese artifacts and art began to appear in Europe and started a big interest in asian cultures. Also balinese gamelan orchestras appeared for the first time in europe.
In his transcription for "Boum-Percussion" Kai Strobel went back to the roots by using the original sounds such as indonesian gongs, cymbals antique and metallophones.
A rudimental "Snare-Drum Choreography", impressively linked to electronics,
written and composed by "BOUM-Percussion"!
