Molotov - for Wind Ensemble (2015)
Winner of the New Music for Wind Ensemble Competition
Duration: 8 minutes
Premiered on April 6th 2016 in Harrisonburg, Virginia
The James Madison University Wind Ensemble
Dr. Stephen P. Bolstad, Director
Through biting octatonicism, dense turbulent textures, and a driving polyrhythmic nature, the music embodies the chaotic, explosive traits of a Molotov Cocktail. The juxtaposition of stability and instability through meter is used to build tension up to a solid arrival towards the end, reminiscent of rock and roll.
