The Inaudible Do

for Wind Band (Grade 3)

"The Inaudible Do" consciously avoids the note C until the final 3 measures, despite being in C major throughout the piece (though also briefly in A minor)
.  The deception required to feel in the key of C Major/A minor is accomplished by implied chords, resonant spacings, and frequent use of extended tertian harmonies.

Recording from reading session by UT Wind Ensemble, conducted by Jason Missal
