Nimiety Redux The word nimiety and the word redux takes their roots in latin for too much and revived. Nimiety Redux uses only 1 set throughout the composition. By taking different transpositions and inversion of the set different pitch centers emerge. The composition is composed graphically, using blank space to represent silence and extended lines for sustain/duration. By using space and sustain lines, density becomes easily seen. Both performers read from the score and follow each others parts for timing. The overall composition contrast fast, moving motion with fast, static and sustained motion creating a shifting atmosphere throughout the composition. The original composition is written for trumpet but there is also a version written in C for any Treble wind player.
