The Basic premise of this show is the journey from Chaos to Order offering a concept with a strong visual and conceptual foundation. Creating chaos on the field is handled through the artful interjection of textured beds and electronic sound design as a thematic element. The Dies Irae melody links these elements together, played by a variety of instruments over time. The finale piece, The Great Gate, is foreshadowed through the the show so the audience is gradually introduced to what eventually becomes the great homecoming at the end of the chart back to “order” which is more about harmonious brilliance than strict order. By using the electronics for most of these moments, the full ensemble will be able to create the most compelling visual pictures to the “chaos” that needs to be represented in the top of the show.
This show features our arrangements of Verdi's Dies Irae (public domain), The Sound of Silence (copyright required) and The Great Gate of Kiev's final push from Pictures at an Exhibition (public domain)!
