Instrumentation: Duet Instruments: Bass, Bassoon
Genre: ContemporaryThis work was written at the request of Tina Carpenter (bassoon) and Nick Scales (bass), and was premiered by them in January of 2007. The original intent for the piece was to showcase as many different timbral possibilities for these instruments as possible, while still holding to a high level of artistic credibility. Its three movements, separated by cadenzas for each instrument, belie a rough adherence to the principles of sonata form in that the two themes so prominently displayed in the first movement provide the main material for the music of the third. The atmosphere is meant to evoke the naturally mournful sounds of long-forgotten caves. Learn More

From the composer:
“Where Leaves And Birds A Music Spin” consists of six short movements, each loosely depicting a scene in nature.
- Borne On a Great Wind
- And the River Flows Ever Onwards
- Emerson’s Acorn
- Through Dawn Mist, A Doe
- Lithic Engines
The first scene is a fantasy of being carried on the wind, rushing over the landscape below. The second follows the journey of a river, through winding meandering paths to rapids. The third movement is based on a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s essay on History that reads, “The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.” In the fourth, a scene unfolds of a foggy morning and the appearance of a doe. The word Dauwtrappen comes from Dutch and describes the concept of walking barefoot in the morning grass when the grass is still covered in dew. The final movement imagines the inner workings of the planet, with lithic, or rock and magma, engines driving continents, creating new lands, mountain ranges, as well as the slow destruction and recycling of the old.
Although I have suggested scenes with each title, I don’t intend these to be concrete depictions, and the listener should let their minds wander freely and create their own scenes as the piece progresses.Learn More

reduction with Rhythm section (recording is with wind ensemble)
The Concerto for tuba and winds is in my usual Third-Stream style, but I utilized
many new techniques for the first time in this piece. Jazz, rock, hip-hop and many kinds
of classical styles come together in the Concerto. Polymeter, improvisation and intuitive
swing notation play important roles in this piece as well as traditional four-part
counterpoint and ancient Greek form. It is simply titled Concerto in a classical fashion
but each movement has a more descriptive title.
I. Swing Low
III. Cutting Contest
I utilized a customized variation on the classical concerto form: a sonata-allegro
first movement, a slow second movement and a theme and variations finale.
Philosophically, this piece explores the traditional nature of a concerto from several
different angles. The first movement explores the cooperative side of a concerto. One
Latin root of the word concerto is conserere, which means to join. The soloist and wind
ensemble cooperate to produce many layers of polymeter in Swing Low. The Latin root
certamen, on the other hand, means to fight. So while the first movement is a
cooperative effort, the third movement, Cutting Contest, explores the idea of a musical
battle between the solo tuba and the wind ensemble on a familiar tune.
On March 6th, 2012, the Concerto was premiered in Seattle. Erin Bodnar led the
University of Washington Wind Ensemble with myself soloing. The Central Washington
University Wind Ensemble then recorded it with Dean Snavely conducting.
This reduction of Concerto features two different versions of the third movement
to allow for players to navigate the virtuosic fingering acrobatics on an E-Flat or F tuba.
The solo lines at letter E were inspired by Arban’s Carnival of Venice.
