    Rock Music - Alex Shapiro

    Alex Shapiro first brought electroacoustic music-- paired with using an everyday object as an instrument-- to middle school bands with her 2010 piece, PAPER CUT. Now comes ROCK MUSIC, possibly the very first geo-electroacoustic minimalist band piece,largely devoid of melody, and of rhythm. Conceptual and atmospheric, the music features compelling textures from instruments, voices, and rocks that weave a wind band into a piece of sonic fabric stretched across linear time. As the notes slowlycrawl, melt, and scrape over a sonic landscape in random, irregular ways, were connected to the ancient glaciers which carved the world we know, and which we strive to protect. Like PAPER CUT, ROCK MUSIC can be equally appreciated by mature bandsand their audiences, as well. To perform ROCK MUSIC, youll need an audio system capable of playing the prerecorded audio tracks from a laptop computer via a small digital audio interface connected to an audio mixer. Download information is providedin the printed piece. Dur: 4:15

    Homecoming - Alex Shapiro

    Homecoming is a distinctly American piece of music which ventures emotionally from doubt, to hope, and finally to celebration. The most simple wind instrument of all, the human voice, echoes meaningful homecomings, wherever home may be and from whatever circumstance one returns. Written for the soldiers of the U.S. Army TRADOC Band, Homecoming seamlessly flows between traditional styles that originated in the U.S., from post-minimalist concert music to jazz. As the music grows into a waltz rhythm, welcoming smiles dance with it to the end as loved ones are reunited.

    Lights Out - Alex Shapiro

    The renowned composer of Paper Cut and Tight Squeeze has created a love child from these two popular works. The result is Lights Out, an audience-wowing excursion into a new realm of opto-electro-acoustic wind band repertoire that incorporates visual and physical elements into an exhilarating piece. The music itself is stunning, but for the full effect you'll want to devise a performance that plunges the audience into darkness and suddenly surrounds them with glowing colors of LEDs and glowsticks. A very physical approach to connecting band music to life - and to light! Dur: 4:30 To perform the piece, you'll need an audio system capable of playing the prerecorded audio tracks froma laptop computer via a small digital audio interface connected to an audio mixer. Download information is provided in the printed piece.
