Adventures Commisioning Consortium

$25 of $250 goal

Raised by 1 person in 8 days
I have been asked to compose a composition for any solo brass instrument accompanied by prerecorded sounds at a high school level. I am doing this via a Co-op Press Commissioning Consortium, which is a win-win opportunity where participants contribute $25 towards the commission fee. Commissioners have local premiere rights for one year and are listed in the dedication. Commissioners are also encouraged to submit a digital recording of their performance of the composition and the musicians who submitted the best recording would be eligible for a $100 cash prize. More information about the consortium can be found at http://cooppress.net
The composition will be called Adventures and will be n three movements: Safari, Climbing Mt. Everest, and Colorado River Rafting. Each movement would have appropriate prerecorded sounds representing the type of adventure. Safari would have animal-type sounds, Climbing Mt. Everest would have wind, breathing, and avalanche sounds, and Colorado River Rafting would have water sounds along with sections with sounds representing serene beauty. The solo part would also be descriptive of the type of adventure but would be more melodic. The soloist would perform from the score that would have the prerecorded sounds notated so that the soloist would know how the two parts fit together. The solo part would be of appropriate range and technical difficulty and be transposed for trumpet in Bb or treble clef baritone, Horn in F, trombone or bass clef baritone, or tuba. Your support will enable this project to happen and I hope that this composition will be a welcome addition to the repertoire for high school brass musicians in a medium that normally requires more advanced players. Your participation will help make this happen. I plan to move forward on this project even if the goal is not met, so please do not hesitate to make your $25 contribution.
