This creative work is one more addition to a series of band pieces that musically describe the fictional saga of an alien invasion. In this installment, the mysterious and persistent visitors from outer space are continuing their quest for world domination with a new and formidable weapon, a giant robotic android. Massive and ominous, it clanks along seemingly unstoppable as the alien troops march forward, bent on total conquest. Effective as a standalone piece, you can also combine it with the other works Aliens Landing (In Your Backyard!), Alien Invasion, and Aliens Among Us for a complete musical sci-fi mini series.

You won't find many works at this grade level that successfully communicate the feelings of calm and grandeur with such striking effect.  The combination of musical percussion, nontraditional effects and sweeping waves of sound create an impressionistic, mature work; and while written to be accessible by young players, it would be very effective for bands at all levels. (2 minutes 45 seconds)

A memorable old Irish jig called Road to Lisdoonvarna is the basis of this piece for young bands. Beginning lyrically with a simple statement, it gradually adds more instruments as it builds to the sprightly middle section. With the full ensemble playing the tuneful melody and the driving Irish rhythms in the percussion section, you hear all the color and flair that's characteristic of great Irish folk music.

Centrifuge was written for the 2015 Southeastern Louisiana Middle School Band Camp and its director, Paul Frechou. This piece portrays a centrifuge vigorously spinning with no sign of slowing down or stopping. An allegro tempo is used to fuel the drive and impetus throughout this energetic musical depiction of a whirling perpetual motion dynamo. The opening theme is first presented by clarinets playing in their lowest register as the machine starts up and begins to build up speed. Underlying the entire work is a pulsating percussion section which provides the thrust and forward motion along with various syncopated rhythms contributed by the winds.

Christmas on the Thames is a fantasy of English Christmas carols circling around the beloved melody I Saw Three Ships. It reflects the buzz of activity both on the streets of London and on board a schooner bound for port loaded with cargo and gifts. Decorations are put in the shop windows; the aroma of warm chestnuts and puddings fill the air; carolers sing and wassail is drunk. The piece culminates with the ship pulling up to the dock to the sounds of celebratory cheers and ringing church bells. Merry Christmas, guv'nor!

One of the most intriguing mysteries of all times surrounds this fabled body of water in a land rich in legend and lore. Imagine being on the shores of Loch Ness, part of a large group of peasants having a party,  dancing while  accompanied by the tuneful sounds of bagpipes and flutes.  At the height of the revelries, the huge, shadowy shape of the Loch Ness monster rises out of the water, causing everyone to flee in a panic.  After gathering at another location, still on the shore of the loch, the dance begins again.  Another chapter added to the legend as everyone wonders: will they be left in peace or will the monster return?

The Corridors of Castle Doria is a musical journey through a castle of varied and mysterious corridors. The opening represents standing upon the steps of the castle and being in awe of its size and majesty. The first corridor becomes narrow and somewhat close, moving ever smaller into a virtual crawlspace. The next section represents a dungeon-like corridor, dark, dank and musty, followed by a secret passage. Finally, there appears a long dark corridor that ultimately ends in the Great Hall and then a race to get out of the narrow corridor and outside to safety.
