Dialogue was commissioned by Jeremy Fitzsimons in 2004 with funding from Chamber Music New Zealand and is Gareth’s first work for two mallet percussion instruments. The piece explores the ability of the two instruments to blend into one as well as highlighting the contracts in tone between the two.
The first movement is a development of a chord progression played by the marimba at the beginning; Balinese interlocking techniques (kotekan) are used in the second movement; and the third movement is a moto perpetuo (constant motion) with the two instruments dashing forwards in parallel, in counterpoint, and in canon.
