Program Notes

Starsplitter is a fast-moving, colorful soundscape, with each instrument playing an important role in the vibrant sonic palette. It's an effervescent work belonging to the episodic "color-splash" end of the spectrum of minimalism. The piece moves from one aural soundscape to another in a free form, always maintaining a constant driving pulse throughout the work. I arrived at the title after considering many combinations of celestial terms to describe this piece’s explosive energy.

The work received its premiere on May 2, 2007, by the New Trier High School Symphonic Wind Ensemble at Northwestern University, Evanston, Ill.
