Program Notes: Color Wheels (2017) was entirely inspired by my children at play. One afternoon we were all in the living room and as is typical, crayons were sprawled across the coffee table. My children began to draw and they developed a game out of creating these colorful circles. Looking for ways to simultaneously create music and engage with my kids, I thought it would be fun to assign each color wheel a cell of music. We created a pattern for the color wheels and from that, a piece of music was outlined. With the children’s direction to add vibrant drumming, I fleshed out the electronic accompaniment and sculpted Color Wheels, a piece inspired by kaleidoscopic imagery and energy.
