        Pipe Dreams - Study Score

        Pipe Dreams - Study Score

        Package includes 1 8.5x11 score.

        In the spring of 2009, I was a senior at Drury University in Springfield, Missouri. Most of my coursework was completed, my senior capstone project was finished, I'd applied for graduate schools, commencement was fast approaching: It was an exciting and utterly terrifying time as I thought about facing the future. In the middle of all this, I wrote a short piano piece--it was this thing I'd been humming for a couple of months. After a few weeks of taking it to composition lessons, it became a piece for percussion octet, and it received its premiere in that format at the beginning of May.

        Pipe Dreams ended up being the last thing I wrote at Drury, and the first thing I worked on during my graduate work at the University of Oklahoma. I added two more movements, and although the complete tryptic was never performed it led to my first commission and my first real accolades as a composer. I later decided to arrange it for band, jettisoned the extra movements, and consolidated it to a single four-minute work.

        The composition process occurred off and on for nearly a decade, during which time I've often considered changing the title--Pipe Dreams is a silly name, and one that's better suited to a piece for pipe organ than for wind ensemble. But there's something about the idea of the seemingly unrealistic and unattainable hopes and dreams from that guy in '09 that resonates with me still. Pipe Dreams is melodically obsessive and rhythmically unsure of itself, but pushes onward with an exuberant, overcaffeinated optimism that is greater than the sum of the fears of the future. And who doesn't need a little more optimism? I think I'll keep the title.
