dc.description.abstractThe light that passes through it (2015) for orchestra is a three-movement composition inspired by the life and artwork of Pacific Northwest glass artist Dale Chihuly. Each movement aims to express the brilliant and luminous qualities of specific Chihuly glass sculptures through orchestrational color and large-scale musical structure. The first movement, "The Sun," depicts the wildly vibrant and intricately constructed glass sculptures of the same title. The second movement, "Seaforms," captures the rippling patterns in works of Chihuly's Seaforms collection through post-minimal formal processes. The final movement, "Niijima Floats," is inspired by the multiple symbolic meanings behind Chihuly's correspondingly titled series of immense spherical floats.en
