Description

While diddling
around on another project, I happened upon the opening gesture of
Whirligigs. I spent some time with the new motive, but soon realized
that it would not fit the piece at hand. The close-knit harmonies and
counterpoint reminded me of saxophone sections from the Big Band Era.
The idea developed further into an intricately woven imitative
counterpoint. This exciting new texture brought to mind a new image: a
field of whirling gizmos, frantically spinning in a strong breeze.
Whirligigs was born from these basic elements.
