Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Salt of the Earth (2012) for brass ensemble and percussion was commissioned by the Detroit Chamber Winds and Strings. The work was premiered on February 19, 2012, by the Detroit Chamber Winds and Strings, conducted by H. Robert Reynolds. The work is inspired by the Detroit Salt Mine, which descends 1300 feet below downtown Detroit. The music captures the power of Detroit industry, the ominous space below, and the artificially illuminated tunnels lined with conveyers, tractors and trucks making their way to and from the surface. Paul Dooley was awarded funds for Salt of the Earth through the 2012 Composer Assistance Program from New Music USA.
