Comino

 

Comino, for steel pan, begins as the barest wisp of sound, a fragile melody played with the pads of the fingers. A wash of close canonic fragments of a simple melody builds gradually, eventually introducing a seventh and eighth note, their respective entrances making the texture all the more colorful. Comino is part of Spice, a volume of steel pan solos (double seconds) available here and is a remix of Whispers. Approximately 3 minutes in duration. Performed below by Kendall Williams and videoed by Loren Stata.
