"it resonates?" is an experimentation with resonant sounds that are seperated into three different "families" of instruments. These families consist of mallet percussion (vibraphone), auxilliary percussion (crotales, small cymbals, and cowbell), and found percussion (metal pipes and a metal plate). Each family throughout the piece recieves similar treatment in which the sounds are altered through different playing areas, different mallets, and dampening. The piece begins with long open tones to set the harmonic language, followed by each section after that stacking another layer of sound ontop of the last. The form functions almost like a spiral; continously and seamlessly moving upward until it suddenly stops.
