…Out of Space
A gentle but haunting Flute solo gives way to narration before the battery picks up the tempo.
Woodwinds create the opening statement, accented by brass hits, building momentum. Each voice builds
upon the prior passing the baton continuing the build. A very upbeat movement, “Space” uses many voices
layering upon the next to introduce different ideas.
…Out of Control
The Flute solo returns to begin the second movement, this iteration with higher tempo provided by
front ensemble runs in the background. Previously introduced themes quickly dissolve into organized chaos
giving the percussion section the spotlight. A warning alarm sounded as we are now “out of control”.
…Out of Gas
A jazzy relaxed intro leads out of the narration and into a more frenzied movement. Traveling woodwinds
and front ensemble keep the speed up before we feel the momentum ebb and flow, culminating in a full band jam!
Tempo and mood changes give this movement complexity before suddenly sputtering out.
…Out of Time
A woodblock marks time in the background as foreboding high brass introduce the final movement.
Different musical voices call and answer each other introducing and then being interrupted by the next,
producing as many thoughts as possible before time… runs… out.
