Synopsis: Rancher Dan Evans heads into Bisbee to clear up issues concerning the sale of his land when he witnesses the closing events of a stagecoach robbery led by famed outlaw Ben Wade. Shortly thereafter, Wade is captured by the law in Bisbee and Evans finds himself one of the escorts who will take Wade to the 3:10 to Yuma train in Contention for the reward of $200. Evans's effort to take Wade to the station is in part an effort to save his land but also part of an inner battle to determine whether he can be more than just a naive rancher in the eyes of his impetuous and gunslinging son William Evans. The transport to Contention is hazardous and filled with ambushes by Indians, pursuits by Wade's vengeful gang and Wade's own conniving and surreptitious demeanor that makes the ride all the more intense.

A NOTE FROM THE COMPOSER

This is not a big orchestral western, and I still have ideas about an orchestral western, but this was a more stylized piece. The thing I enjoyed doing is taking and coming up with whole environmental sounds and landscape of sounds that aren't necessarily part of a traditional orchestral thing. Working with that... I think you can have a lot of fun with it, in a western. These westerns have something, sort of slightly anachronistic about them. They're period pieces but they take liberties with that, musically I think it would have been a lot of fun to do that too and take instruments that were around during that period and use them in a modern way. That's what I ended up doing on this. In fact all the instruments on this were acoustic instruments that could have been used in the period. From the pump organ to the tack piano to the nylon guitars to the native Indian percussion stuff, to banjo and fiddle, tin flute and things like that. Even some sounds that weren't orchestral at all that we were able to use in a rhythmical way with everything else, such as a chime from a grandfather clock, a processed jaw harp and things like that. So it was, from that standpoint, something I've always wanted to do, and it's something that evolves, and I think the western provides a great template for doing this.
