Program Notes

Chroma Mosaic was commissioned by two middle school directors, Jesse Dochnahl (C.S. Porter Middle School, Missoula, Mont.) and Carrie Winkler (Sheboygan Falls Middle School, Sheboygan Falls, Wisc.) as part of the "Mission to Commission" project, funded by the Plum Creek Foundation and the Kohler Foundation, Inc. The Mission to Commission Project was a collaborative partnership that provided an educational opportunity for yearlong creativity, communication, and collaboration for two middle school band programs as students began writing their own music.

Students composed a melody for their own instrument, voted on the top melodies from their school, and submitted them to me. These melodies were to be the principal musical material for this composition, and so I studied them carefully, categorizing them according to style and mood. I interwove salient fragments from several of these melodies to compose a work in a dramatic and narrative style, moving through a variety of moods and textures such as a mysterious, dark bass line, a full chorale-like tutti, cascading downward scales, timid and hesitant figures, bold heroic statements, and finally concluding with a gentle lullaby.
