Spirals (2023)

instrumentation: orchestra
“Spirals” is inspired by the Kenyan toy, Galimoto Boy. The toy is handcrafted with vibrant colored yarn and wire
to form a young boy riding a bike. The wheels on the toy are represented by variations of the initial two-note motif:
oscillating between different harmonic sonorities, conflicting rhythmic bursts, changing the interval of the initial motif,
and quartertones. This piece is also based on overcoming disconnection by reconnecting with childlike exuberance and
understanding the cycles that occur in the creative process.
