Notes & Reviews:

Bartlett was born in 1978 in Madison, Wisconsin and studied at the Eastman School and the Royal Academy of Music in London as well as with the renowned marimbist Leigh Howard Stevens. Not only dedicated to an instrument of our time, he is also dedicated to the music of our time - constantly seeking out composers wit who to collaborate in the creation of new repertoire for the instrument. In particular Bartlett is interested in the integration of computers and other electronics into live performances, creating a high-definition, multi-dimensional sound environment. As he writes of his CD, "One of my main goals was to create a well-balanced album and not simply a collection of unrelated material... with this in mind, it is my hope that this album may be listened to in its entirety, and that the artistic impact of the album as a whole will be much greater than the sum of the works."
