In the North of Aukum Mountain was commissioned by Santiago Sabado and the Mountain Creek Middle School Band from Somerset, California. Written in a ternary, or ABA form (slow-fast-slow), the piece is impressionistic of the mountainous landscapes found in and around the Somerset area. Mount Aukum is one of the peaks in that area, 7 miles south of Somerset near the unincorporated community of Aukum in El Dorado County. The piece begins simply, a simple, 4-note figure forms the basis of the melodic material. As the piece builds, the motives become intertwined and overlapped, forming a lush added-tone harmony. The faster, ‘B’ section is initially reminiscent of a march. In this section the melody is at first augmented, before being further developed. The return of the ‘A’ theme brings us back to the feel of the beginning.
