Great for large ensembles but also effective with the minimum number of players. If you are looking for a performance piece that is energetic and buoyant that audiences will love COASTLINE is well worth considering.

PERFORMANCE/TEACHING NOTES:

COASTLINE is an exciting work that is uplifting, full of variety with weaving lines through all parts.  Works well in all performance settings especially celebration ceremonies. A simple rhythmic motif underpins the entire work and this needs to be precise and light. Use a soft touch in passages marked soft and moderately soft to create the overall mood and ensure a buoyant feel to the piece.

Two bass parts are included however if only one bass marimba is available it is recommended to play bass marimba 1 on that instrument and play pass 2 on the lower octave of a standard marimba.

Coastline works effectively with just 6 players however if you have extra players and spare marimbas try playing some of the parts in different ranges - this creates a new layer of texture to the work and if the dynamic markings are observed it will create a full rich sound.
