Trevino-Electric Thoughts - Product Information

.Electric Thoughts (2014) is scored for marimba soloist + tape and was commissioned by a consortium of percussionists led by Dr. Christopher Lizak.

Electronic pop music has had a lasting influence on my musical and compositional vocabulary. From Radiohead's Kid A to Jon Hopkins' Insides, I've been drawn to music that organically melds artificial instruments with real ones.

I attempt to accomplish this by taking my favorite qualities of the marimba and enhancing them with electronic accompaniment; coupling rhythmic passages with unison drum beats and lyrical passages with electronically sustained sounds. This healthy balance reflects the role I'd like technology to play in my my own life; a balanced accompaniment
