Program Notes

Rainbow Song, for adaptable band, is a contrapunctal fanfare for a rainbow. In the music, several notes are slurred together into melodic ideas that look like "rainbows" in the music. To me, this fanfare has a big, majestic sound, with a rainbow covering the sky with no beginning or end -- just like the melodies of the music that go back and forth between notes.

Rainbow Song also has harmonic elements, called musical chords, that lead the music forward and are fun to tune with bandmates as you play, listening to each other as a group, while making sure your own unique note blends into the musical texture. A chord is made of many notes (usually three) that sound in the music at the same time. You can hear chords in this music, and many other kinds of music too. Special percussion instruments, like the wind chime, also help create a glimmering atmosphere around the chords and melodies.
