This composition was submitted as an entry into a "theme composition" contest in 1994. A new electronics megastore was opening in Northern California by the Tandy Corporation (Radio Shack) and wanted a short piece UNDER TWO MINUTES as a theme for their new store, "Incredible Universe."
So, I wrote this little offering and called it, "Incredible Horns." There were two prizes: Grand Prize of $1000 and Second Prize of $500. I was lucky enough to win the Grand Prize. All because my wife notified me from reading the local newspaper that this contest was taking place. I scoffed at it at first, but decided to give it try..........
Needless to say, my wife claimed half of the Grand Prize of $1000. (How to make a buck by directing someone else's activities.)
Everything is GPO except the choir. That was taken from the Roland SC-88 and recorded as an audio track for inclusion in the piece.
