Program Notes

In this fanfare there are two contrasting musical styles, one that is in sharp focus and one that is blurred. These contrasting styles use the same idea as their emphasis. The blurred music evolves, taking a singular musical idea and slowing it down through various instrument groupings to create a larger and larger pulse. One musical idea ties the piece together, a rhythmic pattern that either slows down or speeds up. We first hear the condensed version of this idea in the snare drums and then hear the elaborated version of this idea played out through the woodwinds in the middle of the fanfare.

Commissioned by and dedicated to Caroline Hand and the Ball State Symphony Band. Written at the I-Park Artist-in-Residence program in East Haddam, Connecticut.
