     The Basic premise of this show is the journey from Chaos to Order offering a story line with a strong visual and conceptual foundation. Creating chaos is handled through the artful interjection of textured beds and electronic sound design as a thematic element, while using the Dies Irae melody to link these elements together. This show also features an arrangement of the classic tune The Sound of Silence that helps represent the in-between of the "Chaos" before the "Order" returns.

     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 was originally commissioned for the fall of 2021 and was released for the 2023 indoor season as a custom version adapted for indoor percussion.
