Today’s Composer Prompt (Piecing It Together)

A piece for orchestra.

Construct it with timbral groups consisting of winds and percussion. These groups “trade” phrases. The phrases should be progressively longer. At about the halfway point, the phrases should begin to elide such that, by the end, all groups are playing together.

Construct the phrases such that they compliment each other when fully combined.

In the background, the strings play soft, slowly undulating lines.
