Swarm Vs. Herd

December 9, 2011 in Post-composition, Uncategorized

Swarm Vs. Herd is a piece for Wind Ensemble that I composed for a student/faculty ensemble at Friends Music Camp, where I teach every summer. The piece is a wild battle in 7/8 between the woodwinds (swarm) and brass (herd). It was a lot of fun to work with and write for such great players, student and staff. We had a blast working on the piece.
