Summary
Sprawl is a single movement work written in AABA form with an intro. The music is intended to be a love/hate letter to Los Angeles. On the one hand the city has its obvious downsides: traffic, pollution, and of course its daunting expanse. But the longer one lives here, the more one discovers that despite these negative aspects, there are countless hidden natural L.A. gems where the gridlock and tumult of the city melts away and all that's left is the desert, the ocean, and the hills. Although I've lived here for over 7 years, I've come to recognize that it's one of the few places in the world that is so vast that one could spend an entire lifetime discovering all of its surprises. In order to create an equally vibrant and surprising sound world for the piece, I decided to add two unusual instruments to the standard orchestra: the tenor saxophone and the electric bass. These colors serve to reinforce the hectic city music that occurs mainly in the A sections. In contrast, the B section provides a moment of peace from the chaos. But this only lasts a short time before we are whipped back into overwhelming city life
