HOW TO WRITE MUSIC: THE CREATIVE PROCESS IN ACTION

This 6-part video series, "HOW TO WRITE MUSIC: THE CREATIVE PROCESS IN ACTION" discusses the making of SUPERNOVA.

Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association and Banddirector.com together commissioned Vince to compose a jazz composition for the All-State Michigan High School Jazz Ensemble.

Vince created six videos that provide insight and samples of the composition through video, score, and audio samples. The project was supported by several Michigan School Band Directors Associations.

SUPERNOVA, a jazz composition in three-quarter time, was premiered in the spring of 2009, and was recorded by the USMA Jazz Knights at West Point shortly thereafter.
