Andy Says: "Dark Matter" is a musically sophisticated but technically accessible chart which features either alto or baritone sax in an extended feature. The main theme is in a straight eighth ballad feel with the solo section and shout chorus in double-time swing. The objective with this piece was to explore a more contemporary "dark" minor harmonic palette while keeping all the parts playable for young musicians.
- Mutes for trumpets
- Alternate Solo parts for Alto 1 or Bari Sax
- All exposed trombone parts cued in saxophones
- Guitar pedal effects
