This chapter presents a short program note written for Nagoya Marimbas. Nagoya Marimbas was commissioned by the Conservatory in Nagoya, Japan to mark the opening of their new Shirakawa Hall in 1994. It is somewhat similar to Reich's pieces from the 1960s and '70s in that there are repeating patterns played on both marimbas, one or more beats out of phase, creating a series of two-part unison canons.

Keywords: Nagoya Marimbas; Shirakawa Hall; unison canons
