ABOUT THE PIECE:
A Praxeum is defined as a “place for the distillation of learning combined with action.” This composition was inspired by a sci-fi book I read, which will remain nameless for now. A wise Master once said “Pass on what you have learned” right before he died. The young pupil eventually started his own training facility known as the Praxeum.
This piece features an optional, but very cool Chimes part written for 5 players, one suspended chime per player to accommodate moving down a parade route. Each player holds one chime suspended by rope, etc, and strikes the bar with the opposite hand. The part may also be played by one individual on a full rack of chimes if playing in a stand-still setting.
