James Brown Loops (1993)

Only performance on a student composer concert at the University of Michigan on November 2, 1993 conducted by the composer.


Program notes:

James Brown Loops is for two antiphonal funk bands. The instrumentation of each band is: Alto, Tenor and Baritone Saxophones, 2 Trumpets, BassTrombone, Electric Bass, Drumset and Percussion. Small rhythmic fragments inspired by the eponymous Master and other hard-funking, horn-based bands (Fishbone, Tower of Power, George Clinton) are treated to various Medieval and Renaissance compositional techniques to acheive a wall of sound.
