Program Notes

This fresh and innovative work uses a variety of textures and techniques that are unlike other works at this level. Colorful percussion, fresh harmonies, and evocative melodies depict volcanic activity that violently creates the ever-changing land formations through fire and fury.

- Program Note by publisher


Commissioned by a consortium of bands across the United States, Ash & Stone is a musical depiction of the power and force behind our planet’s ever-changing land formations. At any given moment beneath our feet, numerous changes take place which result in earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and other types of natural phenomenon. While these forces harness the potential to be disastrous, they are also a stunning display of the power our planet holds and a reminder of its constant evolution. Ash & Stone juxtaposes the portrayal of shifting tectonic plates and erupting magma with the awe and majesty of Mother Earth.

Ash & Stone is dedicated to Amy Moore, my middle school band director and one of my earliest champions as a young musician and composer.
