Excellent piece, and a very nice realization, indeed.  Bravi!

Much obliged.

It's a very good piece indeed. I'm thankful to Mahlerian for letting me get my grubby mitts on it.

I've listened to "Weave" a couple of times. Nice work. Some sections are quite thin though. Won't you consider adding something like a flute and or a clarinet? it would help enhance the colour.

Thank you for listening. I see what you mean about the thin texture in spots, but I was writing for a specific group of instruments and couldn't just bring in a wind even if I had wanted to.

I am currently working on a piece for Pierrot ensemble, though, which has a more diverse palette.

A few things from my time as a master's student in composition:

https://soundcloud.com/user-262986475/weave-for-piano-quartet

All good work, Ben, bravo!  Without at all suggesting any insufficiency as they stand,  I could see both Weave and the marimba piece as first movements in multi-movement works.

Thank you, both for listening and for the kind words. The idea of adding more movements to the marimba piece in particular is interesting, but I'm very busy with a lot of other projects at the moment!

That's the good thing, too!  Carry on!
