Study no. 19

for brass quintet


Performance Instructions:

For brass quintet.

Each player is assigned one of the 5 stationary event nodes. Only one player should follow each event node.

When an attack cursor reaches a player's respective event node, play the notated pitch in any range. Each pitch should be played with a strong attack and long decay (either as long as possible, or until another attack cursor reaches the event node).

A '?' denotes a short unpitched sound.

Dynamics: MF/F.

Duration: Approx. 10-15 minutes, or until all attack cursors have disappeared.
