Each of these five contemporary American pieces for wind band, performed by one of the countrys leading ensembles, explores its own very personal soundscape. Paul Dooley delves into the world of drum & Bass with electronically-inspired orchestrations, whilst for Steve danyew the exploration of counterpint is paramount. In composer Roy David Magnuson's own words, Innsmouth, Massachusetts - 1927 is 'pulpy horror music' which depcts a night in H.P. Lovecraft's terrifying The Shadow Over Innsmouth. In contrast, Scott McAllister's Gone is meditative and prayerful. Pulitzer and GRAMMY Prize-winner Jennifer Higdon's Percussion Concerto is heard here in arrangement for wind ensemble.
