COMPOSER'S NOTES: Eclipse came out of one of my first compositional exercises at Eastern Illinois University. I was asked to create a piece for a solo instrument that conveyed a sense of dialog and at least two distinct emotions. During this time, I was reading a book filled with tales of ancient superstitions. This included a discussion of how some early civilizations and earlier proto-civilizations regarded astronomical phenomena, including eclipses. Out of that germ of an idea, this piece started to come together.I revisited the piece some years later, curious as to how it might sound after gaining a little perspective. I was pleasantly surprised in that it still seemed to clearly convey my initial intent, even if it was a bit rough around the edges. After a few careful revisions, I believe this piece is a solid modern, yet melodic, addition to any intermediate tuba player's repertoire.
