After the success of last year's project with the Macclesfield Youth Band ensembles, I'm very excited to be working on another commission for them, to be premiered as part of the Barnaby Festival/Treacle Picnic in June.
The piece is called 'CONTACT LIGHT' - the first words to be spoken by Buzz Aldrin as the lunar module touched down on the surface of the moon. Not surprisingly, the piece has a definite feel of sci-fi about it and uses a number of additional electronic media in addition to the brass band (It's been interesting and educational for me so far!)
There will also be an exciting announcement made about this piece shortly, but for now, watch this space...
COMMENCE PRIMARY IGNITION!
