Larsen-Like Blind Men Tapping in the Dark (SP)-M (2 players) - Product Information
Like Blind Men Tapping In The Dark by Libby Larsen is a marimba piece for two performers and one five octave marimba. Each player holds four mallets, one facing forward, one facing backward. The title for the piece was inspired by a question during a Q&A session at MIT. When asked if it were possible for us to comprehend the kind of time in which a rock lives, the response was the attempt would be like blind men tapping in the dark. This piece is constructed with patterns. Both marimba players work their way around the marimba, sometimes interlocking, sometimes separate, arriving at the position 180 degrees opposite of their position at the start of the piece.
