CHAIB, Fernando. Vibraphone: a source of sounding colors. Per musi [online]. 2012, n.25, pp. 57-72. ISSN 1517-7599. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-75992012000100006.
This article poses practical questions about musical performance on the vibraphone. Technical concepts for the vibraphone's repertoire, traditionally transmitted orally, are illustrated and formalized into a minimal criterion that can be integrated into the specialized musical performance bibliography. To this end, musical excerpts from standard works in the contemporary music scene are utilized. This work aims to contribute to the existing body of knowledge by providing a pedagogical and artistic developmental tool for composers and musicians.
