Description

Small Worlds is inspired by a series of Wassily Kandinsky paintings entitled Small Worlds 1-12. In these paintings he explores a small set of material consisting of only lines, points, and blots of abstract colors. Musically these materials are explored through varying degrees of notational freedom, sometimes graphical and improvisatory, and other times more strictly notated and synchronized. Each section explores a different level of freedom towards rhythm, pitch, and form respectively.
