This is a composition that I am writing as a result of a commissioning consortium. The composition is for Brass Quintet. For more information about the consortium, please visit http://www.cooppress.net/page9/page385/index.html
Lexicon II is the second composition in a series that defines words through music.
In order to represent Eerie, the word for the third movement, a slow tempo and sparse instrumentation are used along with dissonance, extreme dynamics, trills and glissandi. Eerie means "uncanny, so as to inspire superstitious fear."
