Program Notes

Pulse is a work for concert band which uses minimalistic and pointillistic writing to create a tapestry of pulsing rhythms and colors. The work was inspired by the painting techniques of the pointillism movement during the impressionistic art period, as well as artists such as Georges Seurat, Charles Angrand, Henri Delavalée, and others. The unrelenting rhythm depicts the constant, sharp motions of the painter's brush, each note a point of color on the canvas.

Pulse (formerly titled "Pointillism") was originally part of a larger work entitled "Art(isms)," which was commissioned by Dr. Tim Oliver and is dedicated to him, his associate Dr. Kenneth Carroll, and the Arkansas State University Wind Ensemble. In its original form, it was premiered at the 2010 CBDNA conference in Las Cruces, New Mexico by that ensemble, with Dr. Carroll conducting.
