The renowned composer of PAPER CUT and TIGHT SQUEEZE has created a love child from these two popular and unusual electroacoustic band works, and the result is LIGHTS OUT, an audience-wowing excursion into a new realm of opto-electro-acoustic wind band repertoire that incorporates visual and physical elements. The music engages without staging effects, but you’ll want to give your band the creative fun of devising a performance that will plunge the audience into darkness and surround them with glowing colors —  a very physical approach to bringing band music to life — and, to light!
