  1. HoUsE miX

    Composer: Beck, Jeremy
    Instrumentation: Solo Instruments: Tuba
    Genre: Contemporary

    with CD or MP3 download

    HoUsE miX was composed in September-October of 1995 at the request of tubist Jeffrey Funderburk. The recording of the electronics part provides the first three beats of measure one and then the tubist begins – in time – on the second eighth note of the fourth beat in measure one (marked * in the score).  As to the title, it was my intention in writing this piece to emphasize the electronic nature of the accompaniment rather than to try and disguise it.  In borrowing materials and gestures from the language of 1990s techno dance music, I also sought to borrow one of its structural conceits: the sharp juxtaposition of diverse materials (represented by the mash-up of upper- and lower-case letters in the title). Jeffrey Funderburk has recorded HoUsE miX on his second solo CD, Journeys (Mark Records #3176).

  2. Prelude, Dance and Fanfare

    Composer: Beck, Jeremy
    Instrumentation: Duet Instruments: Euphonium, Tuba
    Genre: Contemporary

    Running approximately six minutes, Prelude, Dance and Fanfare is a set of duets for euphonium and tuba or two tubas. This is a 1998 arrangement of Three Short Pieces for two horns which was composed in 1980 in New York City and slightly revised in 1996 in Cedar Falls, Iowa. In the Prelude, the melodic lines of the two instruments create a tapestry of lyrical counterpoint. Following this is a stately Dance which unfolds primarily as a canon between the two players. The Fanfare that ends the suite provides a rhythmic and energetic contrast to the proceeding two movements.

  3. Tempus Fugit

    Composer: Beck, Jeremy
    Instrumentation: Solo Instruments: Tuba
    Genre: Contemporary

    unaccompanied

    Tempus Fugit (“time flies”) is a brief piece for solo tuba that unfolds in a clear ternary form. The principal figure of the opening section is a rhythmic motive; this is later blended with suggestions of a more melodic nature. The middle section provides a contrast by introducing longer note values in a consistently lower tessitura, before the return of the opening material. Tempus Fugit was written for tubist Jeffrey Funderburk and premiered by him at the University of Northern Iowa, 6 October 1988. Dr. Funderburk has recorded Tempus Fugit on his second solo CD, Journeys (Mark Records #3176).
