I dedicated Stubernic to Stefan and Mary K. Stuber. I went to college with both of these individuals and we have been friends ever since. In 1988 the Stubers went to Guatemala and Nicaragua for a year for humanitarian aid purposes. When they returned they told me stories of their adventures and the many marimba bands they heard, especially in Guatemala. I was writing a vibraphone/marimba duet at the time. However I decided to make it a trio on one low A marimba in the style of the Latin American marimba bands. Although I did not cite any music from Latin America in Stubernic, I did hope to capture the spirit and energy of their music. The title Stubernic comes from the Stuber's last name with the 'Nic" coming from Nicaragua (which is where they spent most of their time that year). For one marimba with three performers. Should be memorized. Players should use medium to medium hard yarn mallets at the beginning. Players 1 and 2 should use a slightly harder mallet after cadenza.
