Open Piece No. 1 for open instrumentation

Everette Minchew

Never ThemeTwice Š 2012


Performance Notes

Every performer should begin with the tutti section. Each player should progress to the next note at his/her own pace. Try to connect the notes. Take breathes as needed. Please take as much time as you feel necessary on each pitch. Make sure there are enough players to cover all of the pitches. Before the piece begins try to decide (roughly) when each solo should be played. Try to create an arc when performing this piece. The first solo should be performed by a keyboard instrument, guitar or even a pitched percussion instrument. The second solo can be played by anyone. Soli can be repeated and varied each time they are played. When a player is finished with a solo please return to where they left off in the tutti section. The tutti section can be performed more than once. On each performance of the tutti section the players should vary the dynamics or attack of each note which should be decided before a performance. Open Piece No. 1 was composed August 1, 2012 in Hattiesburg, MS. It borrows from a piece I composed earlier this year, Waiting (always) upon a fragile instant‌ for baritone sax and harp.
