Description

Prelude and Fanfare takes its inspiration from a piece of NSA Video footage, where a camera is attached to a piece of debris and jettisoned into space from the space shuttle.

The work is a musical reflection of this journey, starting with a 'weightless' lontano section, followed by a high-octane musical representaion of the debris journey, from re-entry of the earth's atmosphere, the plummet back to earth and the inevitable final "thud" of the journey's end.

This musical study explores the use of minimalist techniques and ideas within the confines of the brass band idiom.  The overall structure  of the piece is based on the shape of a crescendo, starting at the softest level the ensemble is capable of, finishing at the greatest.
