Snap or Clap

In wavelike movements a »snap«, then a »clap« wanders across the orchestra. High-contrast, soloistic outbursts are confronted with recurring melodies, which alternate in a wild chase. Lively, spirited passages of the Big Band ensemble join advanced orchestral sounds in a propulsive rhythm, where again and again a »snap or clap« appears among the different instrument groups and continuously new shapes can be spotted on a visual level.
