Into the Void
Brass Ensemble with Percussion
“Into the Void” for brass ensemble and percussion is an exciting piece full of adventure, drama, and heroism. Dr. Josh Mize, director of the Pensacola Christian College Brass Ensemble, commissioned the work for the Spring 2020 chamber concert. It is reminiscent of an epic sci-fi story and depicts a group of space travelers flying into the “void,” a great expanse of mystery and nothingness.
Blue hour was written in April of 2021 for a student brass quintet at Pensacola Christian College, specifically to be entered in a school music competition. It is a reflective piece imitating the dark colors of “Blue Hour,” the time of day directly before sunrise or after sunset. Through the use of quintal and modal harmonies, the piece depicts the phenomenon where the sky and landscape take on a blue tint.
