Audio, Notes, and Score
This piece is a heraldic fanfare, as well as a study in strict time. The goal is to achieve the fastest tempo possible while maintaining the accurate alternation of accents. I wrote this piece for Frank Cook and Matt Haislet, who opened my doctoral composition recital with it. In live performance, the spatial separation of the two performers helps create the “echo” effect and enhances the sense of contrast and depth.
