"Thorfin of Nibor" is a single-movement, programmatic work for wind ensemble and choir that centers on Thorfin, the Scottish Dwarf from the village of Nibor, and his epic adventure against an evil dragon. The piece is inspired by Robin Williams' influence on my life. The work pays homage to our joint interests, namely video games. The piece is 434 measures long.
Prior to the score, an analysis of the piece provides an outline of the overall structure of the work as well as illustrations of the musical quotations used throughout the piece. The compositional decisions made during the creative process are explained by highlighting individual musical moments in the piece and then examining their correlation to the work. Inspirational material is also discussed and examined.
