Joshua D. Tomlinson | Composer

We are bringing electroacoustic music and artists from around the world to Jacksonville, Florida. Please join us! The 2022 Call for Works launches this summer.

Trial by Fire is a broad dynamic three movement work for advanced wind ensembles with live electronics. Microphones placed among the performers drive the enhanced technical effects, adding depth, texture and voice to the space. The piece was commissioned by Dr. Erin Bodnar for the University of North Florida Wind Symphony and premiered at the Musica Electronica concert November 15, 2021.

 
A simplified score for smaller ensembles with live electronics is also available, performed by the NuMIX Ensemble at the CBDNA 2022 Southern Conference, Columbia, S.C.
 
Reference recording: Trial By Fire
 
Full program notes available at Windrep.org.
