It’s hard to explain just how beautiful the sound of a Marimba being bowed is. It’s a percussion instrument, so it’s supposed to be hit. But applying a cello bow to the wooden blocks unleashes a sound like no other.
The sound of bowing instantly makes it appear orchestral at first, but then you soon hear a slowly evolving glassy tone appear from underneath. Playing chords and adding reverb makes the sound of a bowed marimba become almost like a chamber choir. Finally, it’s worth noting that this sounds amazing on its own, but also sounds amazing when layered with your favourite orchestral or choir library. We’re particularly proud of this one!
