Detail

Description

An antiphonal work for 18 brass instruments divided into 3 sextets. The sextets are seperated spatially in a circular fashion in the performance area. The work employs numerous extended performance techniques, 4 kinds of mute, and some graphic and proportional notation. The work is a kaleidoscopic progression of changing timbres and gestures, and ends in a wild frenzy of expanding glissandi, performed employing only the mouthpieces of the instruments. Difficult- a conductor must be used. Suitable for college brass ensembles.

Comments
