Duration: 5 minutes
Premiered virtually on July 25, 2020 by Elliott Godinez and Jack Yagerline at the So Percussion Summer Institute Day of Awesomeness Concert
Avenues all lined with trees was written for the 2020 Sō Percussion Summer Institute. The piece may be performed by any number of players using any number of instruments/sounds. A slowly evolving, atmospheric chord progression is accompanied by different graphics in the score that the player(s) may interpret as sounds. This creates an ambient soundscape that is held together by a simple harmonic progression. The title and inspiration for this piece comes from the lyrics of the song, Ceremony by Joy Division.
