Welcome to my blog

I have created this site in order to provide performers, listeners and composers with a description of a composer's experiences with the creative process. The posts will provide discussions of the inspirations, challenges, and successes of a composer from the inception of the piece to the culmination in performance. I will provide a link to where you can see and hear the works in progress. Comments and questions are always welcomed. They will not posted unless you grant me permission.

Spectrum Suite for Alto Saxophone and Tuba Movements 1-3

This is a composition that I am writing as a result of a commissioning consortium. The composition is for Alto Saxophone and Tuba. For more information about the consortium, please visit http://www.cooppress.net/page9/page10/index.html 

Spectrum Suite consists of seven short movements that musically depict the seven colors of the spectrum. Here are the first three movements.

Red–signifies passion, vitality, enthusiasm and security. This movement is lively and passionate.

Orange–represents creativity, practicality, playfulness as well as equilibrium or control. This movement is moderate and playful.

Yellow–represents clarity of thought, wisdom, orderliness and energy. This movement contains clear counterpoint and is energetic.

Your comments are always welcomed.
