Program Notes

studies on the intensification of light and shadow was inspired by a trip to Milan last summer, during which I had the pleasure of viewing an exhibition of Leonardo Da Vinci's work, that featured not only his paintings, sculptures and inventions, but also his notebooks full of studies on everything from anatomy and light to physics and mathematics. Da Vinci spent hours assiduously interrogating the nature of human perception via both science and art, viewing them not as separate pursuits, but merely two sides of the same coin. For him, art was science and science was art, a sentiment that resonates with me deeply, as someone who works both as a scientist and an artist.

Inspired by Da Vinci's work with light in the Codex Atlanticus, my piece uses sciography [study of the perception of shadows], prismatics, lensing and defraction grating as means of generating various materials and structures. studies on the intensification of light and shadow is dedicated to and written for Philipp A. Stäudlin and The Boston Conservatory Wind Ensemble.
