Fanfare "Xenium" for Trombone

What sets "Fanfare Xenium" apart is its profound engagement with the concept of alienation—not in the sense of estrangement or loneliness, but as an artistic strategy. The piece deliberately alienates aspects of conventional musical traditions, extracting them from their familiar contexts and recontextualizing them within a new, metaphorical space. This space, pressured by the introduction of disparate objects and ideas, becomes a canvas upon which meaning is both constructed and deconstructed.

Contrary to the practices of composers who work within metaphorical spaces or who seek to depict space in their compositions, "Fanfare Xenium" eschews these approaches in favor of something more radical. The piece does not endeavor to represent space; instead, it challenges the very notion of what space can signify in music. Through its notational innovation and conceptual depth, "Fanfare Xenium" invites the performer to navigate this uncharted territory, relying on their interpretive skills to bridge the gap between the isolated elements presented in the score.
