The purpose of this study was to examine Solace, a musical composition for wind ensemble, by Steven Bryant composed for the University of North Carolina at Greensboro Wind Ensemble and premiered at the 2013 College Band Directors National Association National Conference. Through a conductor's analysis and performance guide, the author provided insight and background knowledge to all future performers and interpreters of the work through unique first hand accounts from commission to premiere performance.
The research method included three processes: 1. A detailed analysis of the musical score, 2. The observation of rehearsals and recording sessions during preparation for the premiere performance of Solace by the University of North Carolina at Greensboro Wind Ensemble, Kevin M. Geraldi, conductor, 3. Extensive interviews of Steven Bryant, composer and Kevin M. Geraldi, conductor. Through examination of prior research on electro-acoustic works for wind ensemble, the author examined Solace within those constructs. Because of the blurring of lines between electronics and acoustic sound, the author further identified Solace as a unique musical composition within the electro-acoustic genre.
