Cálculo secreto

Matthew Lau 

Percusionista.[Story time] All-time favorite vibraphone piece: Cálculo Secreto/La Célese by José Manuel López LópezThis hidden gem of in the contemporary vibraphone solo repertoire is by far my fav piece. It’s always on my program since I played it for the first time in my final DMA recital back in 2017. Not only this piece kickstarted my journey on the vibes,and defined my aesthetic on vibraphone pieces; it constantly amazes me how JMLL’s ability to manipulate such dense music in such beautiful and graceful manner. I must have played Calculo/Celeste for more than 60 times since 2017, and will be performing it next Monday in Italy, each time this piece gives me an outlet to express how I am doing emotionally in each chapter of my life [Played it crazy fast during my early days of touring in 2017, Protest in Hong Kong in 2018, Covid19, last minute relocation this past 1.5 year]. This was on my IDENTITY program since December 2022 throughout the US, it enables so many engaging conservation with students who are finding their own voices and identities.Going through my 4 generations of Calculo scores, analysis, studies etc was def a trip down memory lane. Thank you for the gorgeous music you have given us.¿Todavía recuerdas que te envié un email para pedirte algunos consejos sobre el análisis por mi examen doctorado? Me enviaste un gráfico de tu manuscrito y proceso. Me tomó meses descifrar lo que significa. Mi cerebro estaba explotando. Muchas gracias por toda la musica que nos diste Jose Manuel López LópezWhat’s your piece! TELL ME!ITALY NEXT MONDAY!
