ABOUT THE PIECE:
As tempos tastefully increase from 100bpm to 172bpm, the drumline ﬁnds itself “Accelerating Into The Vast Unknown”. Where are they going? Perhaps they begin on Earth preparing for an important and dangerous mission. The second act is a portrayal of ﬂoating through deep space after breaking out of our home planet’s gravitational pull. An asteroid shower is perhaps the threat in the 3rd act. Fighting through valiantly the ensemble triumphs with a big musical ﬁnale. What did they discover? We’ll let you decide.
