Jungle noises and bird calls begin The Butterfly Effect and build the opening production by adding in gentle chimes before the movement really starts to take off. Different voices layer in as the tempo picks up leading to a strong brass fanfare supported by the full percussion section. As quickly as this comes, we move back to a lighter “flighty” feel showcasing various musical voices. As each new idea is introduced, it consumes the direction of the show until another idea effortlessly takes over. The ballad creates a more relaxed and dreamy tone utilizing a saxophone soloist to lead in the ensemble. The dream-like state is shattered when dissonant tones and the battery move the show right into a cadence-like percussion feature. Warm brassy tones begin the next production where previous musical statements are further developed and built upon, giving the show a strong cohesive finale as the multiple thoughts finally become one.
