SKU: S0.758563

Composed by Hayden Woods. 21st Century,Impressionistic. Score,Set of Parts. 22 pages. Published by Hayden Lee Woods (S0.758563).

This is a trombone sextet (or 5 trombones and tuba) that highlights the unseen effects within the mind after days and days of detachment and isolation amidst the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic. Composer notes below:

This piece is the mindset of an individual who, after being sheltered amidst the justified fears of a global pandemic, begins to feel the effects of not being able to actively work or be around others. This causes the individual to hallucinate extremes of the new “normal” that comes after. The tempo of the piece is ranged because the most optimal effect is a bending of tempos (in an agreed upon setting of individual ensembles and their leaders), which also is reflected in dramatic trombone bends. The melody jumps in segments, with each part becoming one of the many voices haunting the crazed individual. The middle of this piece moves into D major, where the individual starts to make sense of the voices and begins escaping the reality they are in. Of course, euphoria comes in waves, so the individual is pulled back into their shelter and has to accept this reality yet another day. Rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat....................

This piece demands the focus of the ensemble in executing pitch bends, locked in tempo amidst a very fluid accompaniment, sporadic shifts in who performs melody, dynamic change and finding the "dissonant consonance" (making the very dissonant at least be an in-tune dissonance). Perfect for the skilled group looking to blow off some steam in these trying times and like the challenge and removal from complete consonance!
