Santa Clara Vanguard’s 6th place show, “Moto Perpetuo,” was constructed around an all-original brass book composed by staff arranger Key Poulan, with percussion parts contributed by Mike Jackson and Brian Mason. In musical terms, one of the definitions of “moto perpetuo” (“perpetual motion” in Italian and Portuguese) is a musical selection or part of a selection where a continuous flurry of notes passes by at a speedy tempo. In science, it’s known as the illusive and impossible theory that it’s conceivable to create a machine that—once set in motion—stays in motion with no additional external help. In Vanguard’s sense, the name implied that movement on the field was continuous and never-ending.
For this week only, you can save on the DVD that contains this complete Santa Clara Vanguard performance, along with all finalist corps from the 2006 DCI World Championship DVD set.
