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 4-5

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 movements 4 and 5.

Green–denotes fertility, growth, balance, health and wealth. This movement has a pastoral nature with lush harmonies.

Blue–makes us think of the Unknown. The sky and the wide oceans are in this color and hence it has been associated with Spirituality and Divinity. This movement  focuses on the vastness of the oceans and would contain sea scenes.

Your comments are always welcomed.
