Abstract

A thousand steps from sunrise was composed at the request of Don Immel for the Slider Asia Festival 2015. It was fist performed by the MCM brass at the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts as part of this festival. The work features antiphonal writing that incorporates a groove that is passed between ensemble groups. The title alludes to the distance of Hong Kong from the equator and the number of stepped sounding notes in the work.
