Canyon Dust (SATB - L4.5)



This arrangement of Becca Stevens composition highlights the cross-rhythms and unusual harmonies in her writing, utilizing clapping and other devices to bring out surprising textures. The beautifully-written lyric tells of how a group of sisters were effected by their fathers' departure from the family. A female soloist is featured, and a free-ish improvisation section keeps the arrangement in the jazz realm.
Notated piano and bass, cajon/drum set

Commissioned by Folsom High School (2014)
