Hollywood composer and horn player John Dickson has a new horn ensemble piece for sale on the IHS Online Music Sales website, complete with his own studio recording.

Blockbusters grew out of a fanfare written some years ago for the composer to use as a horn demo.  Upon hearing it, horn legend Tom Bacon suggested that John expand upon the cinematic nature of the fanfare and create a multi movement work that evokes moods and images which are also movie-like in nature. Since the composer works in Hollywood, it seemed a perfect idea.

Thus the fanfare movement became the finale of this piece, "Fantastic Journey," and the rest of the work unfolded over the course of a couple days. (We work fast out here!) Each movement is designed to take an audience to a different place, whether a quiet reverie in On the Lake or a Dick Tracy-style street fight in Panic Attack.

Blockbusters was given a thrilling west-coast premiere performance by the IHS Advisory Council members to open IHS 47 in Los Angeles with the composer conducting.
