Program Notes

This piece for large brass ensemble and percussion is inspired by the military concept and painting "The Two Thousand Yard Stare" by Tom Lea. The painting depicts the experiences at the Battle of Peleliu in the South Pacific region and elaborates on the feeling experienced through combat.

The A sections depict the rush and adrenaline of various obstacles, sights, and battery effects that would appear throughout the battlefield. The B section packages the concept of the “fog of war” with the complex necessity of courage through uncertainty, all to end in a mysterious state similar to Lea’s famous painting.
