Walkabout - A Kaleidoscopic Journey for Band

Walkabout - A Kaleidoscopic Journey for Band John Brakstad

Serie / Series: Concert Band Originals and Transcriptions
The concept of Walkabout comes originally from the Australian aborigines. A Walkabout is a journey where the goal is of less importance (even though you always end up where you started). It is the journey itself, and what you experience on the way, that is important. That could mean different moods, challenges, experiences in nature, various kinds of people, humour, joy, drama etc.
The composition «Walkabout» consists of a several miniatures and episodes which are woven together. Some of the working titles for the miniatures have been: Call of the Unknown, Walk, Nightfall, At the Lake, Panorama, The Happy Man and The Sad Man, The Clown, The Valiant, Struggle and Relief, and Return to Home.
The recurrent theme, which is heard at the beginning of the piece, symbolises the journey and the call of the unknown.

Kaleidoscopic means «Changing colours and patterns».


[NO]Begrepet walkabout har sitt utspring fra aboriginerne i Australia. Walkabout er en vandring hvor målet er av underordnet betydning (selv om man alltid ender opp der en startet).
Det er selve vandringen og opplevelsene underveis som er det vesentlige.
Det kan være stemninger, utfordringer; naturopplevelser forskjellige slags mennesketyper man møter, humor, glede, dramatikk osv.
Komposisjonen Walkabout er bygget opp av en rekke miniatyrer og episoder som er flettet inn i hverandre.
Noen av arbeidstitlene for miniatyrene har vært: Call of the Unknown, Walk, Nightfall, At the Lake, Panorama, The Happy Man and The Sad Man, The Clown, The Valiant, Struggle and Relief og Return to Home.
Gjennomgangstemaet - som høres allerede i begynnelsen av stykket - symboliserer vandringen og dragningen fra det ukjente.

Begrepet «Kaleidoscopic» kan best oversettes med «endrede farger og mønstre».
