  • visual design by Oliver Bullock, Kyla Archamboult, and Jeff Capponi

Dichotomy

notes:

Dichotomy is an arrangement and musical exploration of the first movement of Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings in C Major, Ralph Vaughan Williams's Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, and Josquin Desprez's Sanctus from the Missa Hercules Dux Ferrariae. Each piece of music is used to illustrate the central conflict of harmony and discord by emphasizing differences that may separate or unite. 

commissioned by Century High School Marching Band, 2011
