It's been a very hectic summer so far in terms of all the work I still have yet to complete. A much longer blog post will be coming in the future about some of the projects I've been working on, but in the meantime, here's a brand-new look at one of the new pieces I've written this year.
It's been a while since I've participated in this one, but I've decided to enter this year's Dallas Winds Brass Fanfare competition! This piece offers a fun and joyous tribute to the thrills of seeking adventure in familiar and/or unknown places. The title is specifically meant to be a direct reference to a quote from Shakespeare's Hamlet (and yes... technically.... to a Star Trek film. Though this wasn't intentionally done on purpose or anything).
Check out a video of the score below, and if you like what you hear, purchase information will be coming soon!
The next blog post will feature some background work on a second piece I'm composing this year - a wild and raucous work for saxophone quartet and fixed-media electronics, to be premiered by the Zenith Saxophone Quartet this fall. Stay tuned!
Composer, cats, and food - in no particular order.
