Program Notes

Clouds is an original composition based on the imagery of different cloud forms. The first section depicts cirrus clouds, the white delicate clouds usually found at high altitudes, and is played by the upper winds. Thunderclouds begin at measure 23 and accents and tone clusters are used to symbolize the increasing electricity associated with thunder and lightning producing clouds. This section provides an opportunity for the percussion to creatively simulate a thunderstorm for approximately 8-10 seconds. Eventually, the sun comes out and the sky has the rounded cumulus clouds that gracefully float away.
