Program Notes

Your percussionists are going to be thrilled with this high-energy feature for concert band. Primal wooden and industrial metallic sounds are the highlights. This piece can be performed either as a section feature or as a soloist spotlight with band accompaniment - but no matter which way you choose, it will bring out the best in your in performers.

- Program Note by publisher

The initial inspiration for Industria occurred in the summer of 2013, while I was driving along Alabama Interstate 85 on my way to visit RWS [Robert W. Smith]. I noticed a large dead pine tree that had been cut into short segments along the fence line, and I imagined my colleague and friend Miguel Castro improvising rhythmic patterns on the various logs lying about. I began to consider different musical motives that might contrast the primitive wooden sounds of logs and other ancient instruments with the modern metallic industrial sounds inspired by the vehicles speeding by.

Industria is the result of these musings, and my collaboration with Miguel, a superb musician and composer. Originally designed as a piece for solo percussionist and winds, Industria was later modified for use by high school bands through the addition of more accessible percussion ensemble parts to replace the difficult solo.
