Nocturne in Gb Major came to me as a simple improvisation. To me, the key of Gb major is the warmest of all 24 chromatic keys. Especially on the marimba with its complex overtones, the key of Gb major simply sounds like a hug to me. I wanted to embrace this warmness through a simple piece that is sincere from the heart in the most direct way.
