- Program Notes
- Lichtweg/Lightway is a wind ensemble piece based on Keith Sonnier’s light installation in Connecting Level 03 in Terminal 1 at the Munich Airport. Bright fluorescent neon lights line the walls of a typical airport walkway to guide travelers to where they are going and help them cope with the stress of being in transit. In this piece, I musically portray the rhythmic placement of red and blue light emanating from this neon installation by creating a constant eighth-note ostinato that is heard throughout the work. Just as the panes of glass, mirrors and aluminum sheets refract and scatter the colorful neon light, this ostinato is diffused amongst the different colors in the ensemble. A 5-part flex version is also available
