  • Notes & Instrumentation

    Destruction and Ascension is a through-composed piece in two distinct halves, meant to represent things that are destroyed then ascended back into creation. Destruction is violent and incessant music consisting of loud driving rhythms across the ensemble, with the performers playing in different time signatures on top of each other. Ascension consists of one tonal chord progression that starts as a marimba chorale, repeating while gradually blossoming into a glorious finale.

    Program Notes
    Many things in this world were created by something being destroyed and then rebuilt, whether it be religion, government, or human’s lives and personas. Destruction and Ascension is a through-composed work in two distinct halves, creating the sense of something being completely destroyed, but being beautifully ascended into existence again.
