For concert band and SATB choir
The idea for Septo came long before a note ever hit the page. After I wrote Tuo Edisni (The Caktak March) and The Eucant March, I pondered more ways to slander and defame the march, the idea for a march in 7/8 time came to mind. Then I took it one step further and added lots of 7th chords and seven bar phrases to make it even more awkward for the listener.
The piece finally came to fruition through the Symphonic Composition Project in 2012. I wrote the piece with as many sevens as I could think up and used the students' writings to facilitate it. Like all the Symphonic Composition projects, it was premiered by the band that wrote it - the Fillmore Central Concert Band on May 8, 2012.
