Remergence.

Abstract

Remergence is a piece for orchestra, about nine-and-a-half minutes in length, that I wrote in the first two semesters of composition lessons with Dr. McAllister at Baylor University and finished editing in the third semester. It is a non-programmatic piece of music whose subject matter is made up solely of musical ideas. This piece, like all of my music, holds its greatest meaning as a manifestation of my musical beliefs: that a piece of music is at its most significant when there is a clear structure which produces dramatic moments and a logical sequence of ideas, that these ideas stem from as few sources as possible to unify the work and presented in different contexts to add greater meaning to them, and to achieve all this with a good deal of polyphony and craft. Remergence is perhaps the clearest and most successful manifestation thus far.
