About the work: ‘Construction’ is my interpretation of the build process for the construction of the Psyche spacecraft. The tune is upbeat and happy, which I feel fits the emotions the technicians will feel as they fit together the pieces that will become Psyche. Along with the written score is a live recording and a music video where I play the parts of the piece. This video features me playing the trumpet, trombone, alto and tenor saxophone, upright bass, and piano. I recorded and edited the music using Apple’s GarageBand software, and I created the video using Adobe’s Premiere Pro CC software.
