Program Notes

The night has always been a dark and mysterious time, represented by this work for concert band. The melodies are syncopated, the harmonies exotic, and the energy ever-growing. Out of this, an urban setting of street-smart harmonies and bluesy ostinatos emerge. Layers upon layers are piled up, building to a fevered climax that ends abruptly, creating a powerful resonating silence.
