AUDIO: Mike Neumeyer – “Marimba Maverick”
Classical artist Mike Neumeyer has a new record out. He’s entirely by himself on the marimba, a percussion instrument similar to the xylophone. With each track, Neumeyer conveys variably cheerful and bright emotions through his shining compositions. Each one is named for what feeling or imagery Neumeyer goes for; “Lost in Thought” for example pauses with introspections like attempts to gather your thoughts. He’s provided sheet music for some of them as well. Every once in a while we stumble upon classical and avant-garde releases, and Mike Neumeyer is the latest.
