  • Additional Information:
  • In the Fire of Conflict is named after the theme for the 2008 Toronto Summer Music Festival for which it was originally composed. This version for solo marimba/crotales was composed for percussionist Beverley Johnston. Set in two continuous movements, the live percussion is performed with the rap music in the digital audio part, sourced from American rapper Steve Henry a.k.a. 'Bugsy H.', of the Christian rap group Poetik Disciples. The solo percussion weaves constantly around the rap lyrics, often drawing melodic contours from the prosodic contours of the spoken text.
