Nishimura-Water Voice (S-n2)-M/PN - Product Information

The instrument, Marimba, is made of wood, but as for me, I have been holding an image of the water on the sounds of this instrument, nemele, such as 'a sound of water drip in a big cave' and 'a sounds of wave hearing in the sea' which are the living water-voice. In the same time, I could hear the water-voice, also, in the piano which is accompanying an aura of the overtone. Encounter with the two instruments, and the water-sound's intercourse as the origin of life, these elements were the basic thoughts to put the title of this piece.

The piece is constructed by the following three parts which will be performed with the exception of pauses:-

Presto: Marimba and Piano play individually with the separated sheet music. Crossing each other of the quick diatonic passages. And the sound of bubbled water.

Moderato: This movement looks like and animal. The piano draws a sparkling water, and the marimba pointillismically plays a sharp sound. A drip and a brilliancy.

Adagio-Presto: In the first half, i.e.: Adagio, both of the instruments play the water melodical lines with a melisma. Two melodic lines often intertwine within the same compass. A melody of rolling water. Accumulation and assimilation of the waves. The last half, i.e.: Presto is a Coda of this piece, and is a transformation of the (I), expanding the compass.

This piece was written on commission of Maestro Hiroyuki IWAKI, and was dedicated to him.
