Westlake-Omphalo Centric Lecture (SP)-4M/P - Product Information

Four Marimba Version

The title comes from a painting by Paul Klee - the direct & centered simplicity of which was an inspiration to me during the writing of this piece. The piece also owes much to African Balofon (or xylophone) music, with its persistant ostinati, cross - rhythms & variations on simple melodic fragments. Like African music it seeks to celebrate life through rhythm, energy & movement. It was originally composed for the Sydney based percussion quartet "Synergy".

  • Nigel Westlake's career in music has spanned more than 3 decades. He studied the clarinet with his father, Donald Westlake (a prominent Australian musician & principal clarinetist with the Sydney Symphony orchestra 1961-1979) & subsequently left school early to pursue a performance career in music. Nigel toured Australia & the world playing with ballet companies, a circus troupe, chamber music groups, fusion bands & orchestras to the cities of London, New York, Rome, Washington, Tokyo, Beijing, Paris, Amsterdam, Vancouver, Moscow, Hong Kong, Berlin, New Delhi & Singapore to name but a few. His interest in composition dates from the late 1970's when he formed a classical/jazz-rock/world-music fusion band to play original music. During this time he started to receive offers to compose for radio & circus. Commissions for TV & film soon followed.
