Leif

’Leif' is a piece for solo marimba and electronics played as soundfiles in stereo. The electronics is controlled by the musician on stage and played through small speakers inside of the marimba. The title ’Leif' is short for four words was an inspiration during the composition process:                Lento, Espressivo, Indefeasible & Fragile. 

Leif is a Nordic name and in my imagination a man called Leif is calling out for attention and help. The duration of the piece is about 6 minutes. 

The piece is written for and commissioned by the Swedish marimba player Ellen Sjö Sander in 2014.


’Leif' is in the serie Equinox". Other pieces in that serie are Med en rest av kyla, Palabras, Cerulean Minim, Merle & External cabinet.
