for solo harp with 2 superball mallets - pedal harp or lever harp with Low As
As the longer periods of sunlight begin to melt the Artic ice, the elusive blue whale starts to come inland and feed in near-shore waters. Using two superball mallets and extended techniques on the harp, white grey blue explores the sonic sound world of summer in the Artic. The irregular pulsing of struck strings (using a superball mallet to imitate the sound of a cimbalom) represents the cracking and melting of the ice. The eerie song of whale noises are created by extended techniques on the wire strings of the harp. Both these sounds flow through this hymn to the largest and noblest of creatures on this planet.
