Melting Clocks

For winds and percussion


Difficulty: Band Grade 2
Duration: 2:20

Melting Clocks is a quirky romp through Salvador Dalí’s painting ‘The Persistence of Memory.’ Quotes of the commissioning school’s fight song and alma mater are synthesized with bending melodies, tick-tocking elements, and a unique harmonic language.

Melting Clocks was commissioned by the Band Boosters of the Gateway School District (Monroeville, PA) for the Gateway Bands.
