“Slow Machines Moving at a Surprisingly Fast Pace” was commissioned by Brielan Andersen, DMA in Tuba Performance, for the University of Missouri-Kansas City Tuba-Euphonium Ensemble, under the direction of Thomas G. Stein. This piece was premiered on June 1st, 2016 at the 2016 International Tuba Euphonium Conference held in Knoxville, Tennessee at the University of Tennessee. This piece, along with many other compositions for tuba, is also featured on Brielan’s CD “Music for Tuba and Friends”.

"Slow Machines Moving at a Surprisingly Fast Pace” is a piece that is written for tuba-euphonium ensemble. The piece is based on the stereotype that these low brass instruments can’t play quite as swiftly and gracefully as a violin, flute, or something along those lines; however, to prove this stereotype wrong, these “machines” can, and do, move at a surprisingly fast pace. The piece features two different melodies that can be heard throughout the entire piece, usually being played by two instruments, while the other instruments have a steady, almost machine-like rhythmic material.To fit into Brielan’s broad theme of “American” for her CD, I decided to go down the route of minimalism, which the minimalist music movement began in the west coast of America, the music is similar to that of Steve Reich with phasing between the instruments, and the title is a bit of a parody off of John Adam’s “Short Ride in a Fast Machine”.
