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.
Conductor’s Scores for large ensemble works (wind band, orchestra, etc.) published by E.K.R. HAMMELL MUSIC are optimized for 11x14 printing.
Parts, Choral Scores, & Solo Vocal Scores published by E.K.R. HAMMELL MUSIC are optimized for 8.5x11 (standard US Letter size) 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”
-B&W on 70lb opaque/matte paper
-No page additions needed
-Coil-bound OR saddle-stitch spine (cheaper)
-Collector Covers (OPTIONAL) : colour on white card stock (Collector Covers can be found as a separate 4-page PDF attachment sent with your initial order)
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: When printing at 9x12 or 11x14 sizes, 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). Use “Fit Pages” or “Fit to Printable Area” instead.
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 the booklet.
NOTE: All purchases now arrive in convenient arrangement for printing: the PDF score is sent in a black&white format separate from the PDF Collector Covers (colour), which can be added to any print score optionally. Collector Covers are only available when you order directly through EKR Hammell Music!
