Episode for Brass Band is Vail's first ever work composed for Brass Band. Originally composed in 2011, and reworked in 2017, Episode explores the process of developing an original theme through a series of different emotional contexts.

The melody is passed through a haunting opening, a hymn setting, a fiery allegro, and an idiomatic brass band finale. The story behind episode is open to the interpretation of both performer, and listener, but use of tubular bells and descending scales infers a religious subject.

Vail hopes the the work will provoke a different experience to the listener each time they experience it.
