Everything & More was written in response to Disquiet Junto Project 0387: Everything and More
There is only one step to this project:
Step 1: Make a single piece of music using every single instrument that you have at your disposal.
I write my scores using Sibelius software and play that score through Noteperformer. This means that in addition to just about every instrument you have heard of, I have at my disposal instruments such as the Taiko, Cimbasso, and Bandoneon.
So I decided to make a little change to the project, which was to include every instrument that, at some point in my life, I have learned to play to at least some degree of proficiency, and have performed in public (which would leave out instruments like the tin whistle, which I played but never performed before anyone, as well as reel-to-reel tape recorders, which I used to create electronic music in the mid-70s).
This collection of instruments formed a rather motley group that, frankly, was pretty close to impossible to bring into coordination – sort of like trying to get a group of three year olds to dance together – so the piece Everything & More is similarly on the quirky side.
Everything & More was written for Clarinet, Baritone Horn, Piano, Acoustic Guitar, Electric Bass, String Bass and Voice.
