for Solo Vibraphone


Written for Danielle Gonzalez

This concept behind this piece is quite simple as the title suggests. I wanted to write a piece about minute details and small movements. Life in the minuscule or “soil” so to speak. This was my first piece for solo vibraphone which is my instrument of choice as a percussionist so it took me quite a while to find this particular pieces identity. I ended up finding the idea of smallness was what guided me through the piece most effectively. The more you take time to observe the smallest things, the bigger they seem to become. All the more astounding when paired with how small we must be.
