A musical percussion instrument with a double row of tuned metal bars each above a tubular resonator. Contains a pedal to control sustain. Most impressively (and physically) played with four mallets. Emits a mellow and smooth singing tone.
Celebrated as one of the most exciting vibes players in the world today, Nick Parnell plays both contemporary composition and makes old music new again. He injects energy into repertoire that might be familiar to some, but definitely inspirational to all. With a spirit of recklessness, Parnell takes one of the newest of classical instruments and gives it a genre-bending makeover.
Steel yourself for his mallets of musical mastery.
