"Failing Defense"

Instruments: Brass, Percussion, Xylophone, Strings

Feel: Action, Aggressive, Intense, Suspenseful

This piece begins immediately with horn blasts, strings, and a bone-jangling xylophone. After the brief intro the horns play a melody, then the horns drop away away except tribal drums and staccato string bursts. The music returns in a big way, suggestive of a tense battle, as the instruments compete against each other, until the rapid discordant end.
