This project addresses the issue of a shallow repertoire for the saxophone ensemble with a multimedia, interdisciplinary contribution of Gustav Holst’s The Planets. Beyond expanding the ensemble repertoire, this arrangement introduces a routinely excluded instrument and its respective musicians to repertoire they would otherwise not have the privilege to play, and to apply the culmination of skills acquired throughout my experience in academia: saxophone, arranging, visual art, and audio/video editing. This project consists of my arrangement of Holst’s The Planets for large saxophone ensemble, my audio recording of the arrangement, scans of thirty five of my paintings which serve as visual accompaniments to the recordings, a scoring guide detailing the justifications in the arrangement choices, and a performance or rehearsal guide for each of the seven movements.
