From Ann Arbor, MI, and now based in Philadelphia, Oliver Mayman is quickly becoming a distinguished voice on the vibraphone, redefining what's possible on the instrument through an inventive technical approach and a discerning creative ear.
"Advanced Dampening Techniques for the Modern Vibraphonist" is the culmination of hundreds of hours of work, practice, and deep thinking about dampening technique on the vibraphone.
The book will feature 16 etudes, each demonstrating a different type of dampening —some standard, some uncommon, and some completely novel. There will also be three longer, final pieces encompassing all of dampening technique.
Official release date TBA — aiming for summer of 2022!
