This is an outstanding fresh new composition for euphonium and electronic accompaniment (on CD).

It was commissioned by the Canadian euphonium player Carina Lam, while she was studying at the RNCM with Steven Mead. The composer, Thomas Kelly B.1989 Is a Dublin born composer and trombonist currently based in Manchester.

 The piece is set outside of the earth's atmosphere, in space. It explores the idea of a person being completely detached from anything (Set Adrift) and having no human contact. There are three sections in this piece each with their own emotional ranges. The opening section has a feeling of loneliness, while the middle section has a feeling of enjoyment which turns to despair as the piece fades out into the dark, and unending universe.

This work was recorded on Steve's Dream Times album, and a sample of this work and others from this album can be heard here.

Highly recommded.

Duration: 7 minutes

Difficulty: 4/6
