Eighth Note Publications Flexible Band/String Series is the ultimate in flexibility with non standard instrumentation for ensembles with incomplete instrumentation or odd combinations. These pieces are playable by as few as 5 woodwind, brass or string players with or without percussion. This creates the opportunity for a mixed quintet to perform these titles but also allows for performance for 10-15 players up to full a band/orchestra with parts doubling. Great for music camps, contest use or any band room that has non standard instrumentation.
Inventions have changed our lives. Whether it be the wheel, electricity, car, telephone or the microchip, inventions have allowed us to live better, and sometimes longer, lives. This piece is about the path or journey to these great discoveries. The music is always moving forward-advancing. Even with slight sidetracks or failed experiments, the journey presses on, the journey of discovery. (2:30)
