AUDIO: Mike Neumeyer – “Blue Electric”
Composer and percussionist Mike Neumeyer’s latest edition of his color-centered marimba series focuses on blue. Neumeyer thought of a Crayola marker called “Electric Blue” and just like that the piece became a reflection of the past. His mallet work is busy and shuffling, like all the memories pouring in at once. It’s a blissful blast of nostalgia from Mike Neumeyer, admiring what once was but will never be again.
