"Written in May 1995, OCCURRENCE tells the story, from the composer's childhood, of a strange and curious experience which happened in August 1966.... The composer... was 11-years-old at the time.... [Early one] evening, [he was] outside alone - sitting on his swing, his flashlight in hand, feeling quiet and still.... Then, something changed.... At that moment, he looked up at the sky to his right and there he saw a red-orange, cigar-shaped object moving silently across the sky. Suddenly, a car honked; he turned his head and the object in the sky disappeared...! The composer was frantic, but he knew he could tell no one because they would never believe him....
Yet the next morning brought with it curious confirmation. The composer's grandmother ran to him, flashing the newspaper and saying, "By golly, you were right! Look at this!" The headline read, "UFOs Flash Over Twin Cities: Picked Up by Radar. Hundreds of Witnesses."
- from the "Introduction"
"OCCURRENCE transcends the trombone duet repertoire. It is the first duo I have played that lifts both the audience and performers from their places, takes them on a journey, and puts them back - altered. OCCURRENCE is a truly powerful piece."
