About “Light Cycles”

“Light Cycles” is a 17 movement work written for and commissioned by my friend Claire Niederberger. I asked Claire Niederberger so send me a list of 10-20 specific colors and she selected each shade primarily based on the name of the color. While I composed each movement, I was primarily influenced by the visual hue of each color. My goal, when developing this work, was to create a flexible and customizable performance piece. “Light Cycles” is designed to accompany a wide array of programming settings. As many or as few movements can be performed in a given performance as the performer desires, the movements can be played in any order, and the movements can be performed continuously or scattered throughout a given setlist.
