Program Notes

This piece is just what one might imagine from the title – a surreal soundscape of crashes and splats and thuds, slashing chords and terrifying thunderclaps.

Raining Bricks was composed in consultation with conductor Trey Harris, who assisted throughout the composition process, providing invaluable advice to make this work accessible to grade-five ensembles. Harris led the commission consortium and conducted the premiere at Kennesaw State University. This piece is dedicated to him.
