Program Notes

White Only. Colored Only takes inspiration from the works of Gordon Parks. Known as a legendary photographer, Parks documented many important aspects of American culture from the early 1940s through the better half of this century. There were several photographs taken in 1956 that showed real, everyday situations where the signs were posted, "White Only. Colored Only." My piece will musically represent this struggling duality with free flowing improvised lines against rigid, static rhythms.
