Composer: Andy Harnsberger
Publisher: Innovative Percussion, Inc.
Instrumentation: Marimba

"Words Unspoken" is a four-mallet marimba solo for the experienced player. A five-octave marimba is needed to perform the work, and the performer must be proficient with double-vertical, single-independent strokes, single-alternating strokes, and one-handed rolls. Harnsberger employs one-handed rolls at the interval of unison and the octave. Additionally, the octave is the primary intervallic distance explored throughout. The composition is very malleable by use of rubato and descriptive markings such as "barbaric, savage" to encourage a musical performance. "Words Unspoken" will challenge the "musical soul" of each performer." - Lisa Rogers Percussive Notes, February 2005
