Gwendolyn Burgett's performances of non-"super" marimba pieces may be for you. Roshanne Etezady's Boomslang, a sub-Saharan snake. The piece is quick, with sections of accented offbeats and tempo shifts. Douglas Fisk's Impromptu has a sweet, endearing melody that is simple and genuine. Electronic drones and pedals create a constant, flowing background; and the marimba is highly limited in its motion in the small amount of time it is audible.
