Pulse by Andrew Boysen, Jr.. For concert band. Conservatory Editions. Grade 5. Score and parts. Published by Neil A. Kjos Music Company (KJ.WB419).
Another dynamic and dazzling selection by Andrew Boysen, Jr.! Pulse begins simply, with a steady, constant beat, but quickly transforms into a dense thicket of rhythms and textures. Using aleatoric techniques to create moments of hair-raising, sublime chaos, only to shift abruptly into eerie evocations of a nocturnal soundscape and end with a vision of peaceful serenity, this one-of-a-kind selection is sure to thrill and captivate.
