dc.description.abstract A Loud City Overture is based on my impressions of Houston's sonic landscape and my fascination its cultural diversity. This city welcomes and accepts you as an equal and then it is up to you to take it to next level. The work is written in somewhat classic Sonata form of the Italian Style Overture. Various musical styles are alluded to without trying to pastiche their elements. These different musical elements play off each other creating a hybrid character which is hard to define. The orchestration has been greatly influenced by my experience with pit orchestras as a conductor of musical theater. Thus the emphasis on the winds and brass as opposed to the strings, the latter being used more as a unit rather than individual players.
