Inspired by Inuit throat singing, Fertility Rites (1997) for marimba and digital audio is a haunting and highly expressive work. It is innovative for the way it combines live percussion with the digital audio part, consisting of prerecorded marimba sounds and Inuit throat singing. The katajjaq (vocal games) used in this work are used to evoke the sounds of the fertility ritual, a shamanistic mating call, which makes it particularly engaging for performers and listeners.
