Product details

…of magic and realism pays homage to the literary genre commonly referred to as "magical realism", an approach to literature that has found ubiquitous appeal throughout Latin America. One of the key facets of such authors as Mario Vargas Llosa and Gabriel Garcia Marquez is their uncanny adroitness to fashion minute and even seemingly trivial detail, so the reader becomes hyper aware of a most convincing physical or emotional reality. This condition, however, may be obtrusively intercepted by supernatural threads, thus drawing into question how quotidian life would respond to magical intervention. This piece for recorder and marimba is suggestive of such detailed perception that is embodied in the intricacies of repeated rhythmic events wrought within the twofold (and at times, threefold) layer of texture that conflict to create picayune moments of tension, and their subsequent denouement. There are moments that offer a modicum of lyrical respite, which to me can suggest a degree of subjectivism or of the magic itself; perhaps these are born of the same fabric…
