Downhill Run by Sean Foran for vibraphone and piano (comes with free downloadable backing tracks)
A work comprising of three distinct sections that features repeated and grooving motives on the piano and captivating vibraphone melodies. Rhythm is the key in this piece with attention drawn to the off beats, which create the illusion of more complex time signatures. Elements of cuban music appear with clave like patterns in the piano and in the final section the vibraphone kicks it up a gear with exciting phrasing across the bar.
The addition of improvised auxiliary percussion parts like bongos, claves and shakers can be used to augment the instrumentation if desired.
