Sheet Music: Score
The Colour of Woods / Cameron Lam.
by Cameron Lam (2009)
The Colour of Woods is a playful, driving piece for
marimba and temple blocks. The timbre of the registers of the
marimba and its muted D key alongside the temple blocks create
the wide palette which the Colour of Woods explores. Wood also
generates a pitch when it's used in percussion creating 5 'out of
tune' notes from the temple blocks to additionally colour the
The piece, written for (and being premiered by) percussionist Claire Edwardes was inspired by her style of performance. The various metres used, the cross-rhythms, and the phrasing seek to emulate the wonderful experience of watching Claire play with such physicality the pieces seem choreographed, not just performed.
