Skyline is an impression of Toronto’s cityscape. The piece attempts to synergize a potentially nonsensical mix of ideas in musical terms (anxiousness & coolness, order & chaos, gracefulness & rambunctiousness, etc.), and does this primarily by building upon a basic aesthetic of perpetual motion and increasingly interlocking layers, patterns & textures.
PDF Parts, Choral Scores, & Solo Vocal Scores published by E.K.R. HAMMELL MUSIC are optimized for 8.5x11 (standard US Letter size) printing.
PDF Conductor’s Scores for large ensemble works (wind band, orchestra, etc.) published by E.K.R. HAMMELL MUSIC are optimized for 11x14 printing.
IDEAL PREPARATION (send your large ensemble Conductor's Score PDF to a print shop with the following specifications for best results):
-Fit all pages to 11”x14”
-Covers (first 2 pages and last 2 pages of document): colour on light white card stock
-Interior pages: colour on 70lb opaque/matte paper
-No page additions needed
-Coil-bound OR saddle-stitch spine (cheaper)
If 11x14 printing size is not available to the purchaser, this sizing scales down fairly well to either 9x12 (a common concert band score size) or 8.5x11 (standard US Letter). This can be accomplished by selecting “Fit Pages” or “Fit to Printable Area” in your computer’s printing specifications window.
NOTE: Avoid using the “Shrink oversized pages” option as this will not appropriately re-format the smaller text-based pages of the booklet (which are set to 8.5x11).
NOTE: Scaling down to 8.5x11 is not recommended for large ensemble scores (due to legibility concerns), but if it is your only option, it will work! In any case, make sure to select “Fit Pages” or “Fit to Printable Area” before printing.
NOTE: If conserving ink, select print range that excludes the first two pages and last two pages of the score (the “Inside Covers” will become the new covers)
