Abstract:Makani, a three-movement work for wind ensemble, is intended for performance by college wind ensembles. In the composition of the work, I have attempted to write a piece that is within the ability level of most college ensembles, but it remains to be seen where the work lies in the scale of difficulty for such groups. In the critical essay that follows, I will illuminate the compositional processes employed in the creation of the work and analyze the results in terms of structure, motive, rhythm, harmony and orchestration. Each movement will be analyzed according to its own prevalent process: I. Ko’olau – accumulation, II. Mauka – assimilation, III. Kona – dissipation. Finally, conclusions about the compositional process will be drawn as well as parallels with the work of contemporary and historical compositions for wind ensemble and other groups.
