    Oculus is a snare drum and tape piece inspired by a tour to the Pantheon in Rome, Italy. The track encapsulates the listener inside of the Pantheon, while the performer simultaneously accentuates the melodic material.

    Program Notes
    In the summer of 2016, UNC-Greensboro’s Wind Ensemble went on a performance tour to Europe (Czech Republic, Austria, and Italy). Our last stop on the tour was Rome, Italy, which was the most memorable location for me.

    On our last day of the tour, we were given a free day to explore wherever we pleased in Rome. My colleagues and I decided that we would start off the day with the Pantheon. After walking through a series of narrow side roads, you make one final turn and the Pantheon appears out of nowhere. The power and beauty of the building took my breath away. The columns, lettering, and the materials were all so pristine still to this day. When I was walking through the entrance doors, I couldn’t help but look up and see the single oculus with a stream of light illuminating the entire interior of the building. I still have a hard time understanding how architects in 128 A.D. were so innovative. I was captivated by the Oculus as I walked around the inside of the building. Rafael’s grave, the precision in design, the flooring was all so humbling, yet all I could find myself observing is how the light shined through the oculus. The first theme presented in the tape part symbolizes the light coming from the oculus. As the performer explores the interior of the Pantheon, this theme always finds its way back, symbolizing the always-changing beam of light coming from the oculus.
