Program Notes

Red Sky is a 14-minute work based upon the Big Bang Theory. Commissioned by Professor Brad Kerns and The University of Kentucky Wind Symphony, this work was premiered in October of 2012 and recorded in November of the same year.

According to the theories of physics, if we were to look at the universe one second after the Big Bang, the scientific explanation of how our universe started, what we would see is a 10-billion degree sea of neutrons, protons, electrons, anti-electrons (positrons), photons, and neutrinos.

Red Sky paints a picture of the Big Bang Theory and space, matter and energy, but it also has a deeper meaning: that we are all the same as human beings, and to realize that wherever we are in the world, in this large universe, that we're all connected.
