This is the finished version of an orchestral piece that I began writing around the Fourth of July, 2005.

It is possible to experience a deep love of country, even in the midst of dissatisfaction with government and personal feelings of cultural alienation. However, that kind of love and alienation produce tension, which is hopefully present in the opening movement, and throughout “American Plain.” But this is not a political piece at all. It is really a landscape. In fact, it was inspired by the broad, almost endless landscape of the American Plain. I also chose that title because I believe this “symphony” is very plain.

American Plain (runs: 17:52)

I. Fanfare
II. Kansas
III. Progress & Destruction
IV. Hymn

Thanks to Mystified, who convinced me to keep expanding this beyond the original fanfare. Some of these movements were posted previously on iComp under different titles.

I listened through twice in a row! This is a great composition - I'd love to hear it as a fully acoustic piece, but even as a GB your ideas sparkle.

Brilliant! Simply brilliant!

Thanks, Tom, for hearing that there was, indeed, more to this than a single fanfare smiley
