Program Notes

Kinetic Dances is a dance for symphonic band in mixed meter. The rhythmic interchange between 7/8 and 4/4 time is utilized to create a unique rhythmic flow for the work. The challenge, when writing this, was to make the meter feel as natural as possible. The piece is in a slightly modified rondo form, with the main theme alternating with contrasting sections. Careful consideration was made in orchestrating this work to make it achivable by schools with smaller instrumentation, in accordance with the request of the commissioning party.

Kinetic Dances was commissioned by Steven H. Moss and the C.H. Yoe High School Band of Cameron, Texas, for performance in the 2014 TMEA conference in San Antonio, Texas. I owe him and his students a huge debt of gratitude for trusting me with this project.
