A Chance Taken - Wind Band & Electronics

Recommended Posts

Hey all, just joined the forum, hoping for some input on a big piece I wrote a bit ago. I'm hoping to make some revisions soon and am looking at publishing eventually, so I'd be grateful for your input! A score is attached, I ask that you don't share it outside of this post.

A Chance Taken is a piece I wrote in my last year of undergrad as an extracurricular project on top of my senior recital and student teaching prep, meaning I've only had a little bit of input on it. It's my most ambitious work to date, a 6-minute piece requiring a full sized Wind Band and an electronics track played on speakers. There's a variety of inspirations that went into this, including electronic, world, and and video game music. A big focus was on getting a lot of use out of three-ish different themes, and weaving them together in a variety of contexts. I'm especially proud of the closing section, which uses all of them at once.

I have a VST recording here, which is the best representation of my vision for the piece. There's a lot of little details in there, so I'd reccomend some decent headphones if you have any.

 

I was also fortunate to have the piece read by my university's Wind Symphony, although the recording quality isn't fantastic and we didn't have long to rehearse. I do like to think it might highlight some orchestration/balance issues though. Here's that recording:
