big ban

composition for contemporary jazz orchestra

The piece was written for the Concept Art Orchestra. Because classical jazz big band players are usually acustomed to listening closely to their instrumental section co-players to tune the jazz chords and to be rhythmically accurate, here they are encouraged to direct their listening in a different way. They tune in to natural tuning, referring to aliquots produced by piano strings, and barely meet with their co-players rhythmically. The piece is dedicated to women in leadership.

Big ban was premiered by Concept Art Orchestra at the Czech Radio 27/11/2017
