This production features multiple phrases that are first played forwards then played exactly in reverse, some role reversal where the battery plays the melody and the pit the percussion, a tribute to the past with a modern approach to the classic work “Ode to Joy,” a hypnotic section based on the counting backwards idea and a final feel good moment to take this simple idea to the next level. From the costume design and floor options to the electronic sound production through-out, “Backwards” has everything it takes for the big over the top GE show.
Backwards was originally commissioned for Fountain Valley HS and was an Open class finalist at WGI Championships in 2009. This show was released for the 2010 indoor season and features the front ensemble and the tenor line.
This version of the show requires an extra set of crotales, or some sort of tuned hand chimes for the battery to play the melody in the beginning of the 2nd movement.
