    On the Railroad to chic.ahh.go

    Warning: high energy chaos-more chaos style (but sounds very conventional to me now)

    On the Railroad to chic.ahh.go (11.5 Mbytes; 10:10; Winds and Brass)

    One Movement in 3 parts:

    1. Rollin'
    2. Hustlin'
    3. Skadattlin'

    2 Flutes, 2 Clarinets, 2 Bass Clarinets, Bassoon, Contra Bassoon, 2 French
    Horns, Piccolo Trumpet, Trumpet, Valve Trombone, Tuba, Pizzicato Strings

    Program: Anticipation, excitement while rolling into the big city. Hustling under the skyscrapers. Getting out of town - FAST - and not looking back, well, maybe just once ...

    SIR reverb using the 350seat impulse set from noisevault.com

    The 2nd part (about 4:15-6:15) features what I hope are some interesting modulations.

    APOLOGIES to everyone in or loving Chicago. I've never been there, not counting the few times I was snowed-in at the O'Hare airport ...

    I rushed this out in time for Alaska Day, where the whole town celebrates the purchase of Alaska from Russia. Among the many festivities were the Army bands: Dixie Land Band played at the Pioneer, Brass Ensemble played at the Coast Guard Hangar, Big Band and the Arctic Rock Ensemles performed at the Centennial Hall ! I was in aural heaven ...

    Take Care,

    Yes it sounds conventional, and it is related to a good and euphonic use of the instrumentation.

    The complex and advanced writing is then "exportable" to common people.

    Really interesting, IMHO.

    Excellent work! It's not often that an all wind piece comes across like this. In addition to the multitude of tone colors the rhythms are complex and captivating. And the modulations you spoke of are indeed interesting. Nicely done. Reminds me of a day trip to Chicago many years ago.
