Original Conception: March 2009
Program Notes: In Retrospect was the first working title for "Modern Sonata," whose draft didn't score too well on this site - no prob, it was a draft, and it clarified exactly what I wanted it to. The idea behind this piece is a fusion of sorts; beginning in the low brass classically, using ambience and percussion to disorient, then finish with electronic instrumentation joined with brass to create something new entirely. In a way, it represents my two worlds and insights into music: my classical and contemporary training, coupled with my love for electronic, film, and video game music. Enjoy!
First Draft Titles: Modern Sonata (cut some), Modern Sonata 2.0 (cut even more), then scrapped the whole introduction and came right in on the Tuba Soli.
