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.
The fourth movement, Amok, is filled with dissonance, counterpoint, and chromaticism in order to represent its definition; "to behave uncontrollably and disruptively." Sections of order seem to break down into sections of chaos and the movement ends on an unsettled chord.
