about

A Kaleidoscope of Harmonies for 16 saxophones by composer/performer Colin MacDonald.


Long before we had mechanical timepieces to measure out the day, we lived our lives on a longer temporal scale, moving to the rhythms of the sun and sky and seasons. This work for 16 saxophones takes an hour of time, divided neatly into 12 sections for each month of the year. I try to model the cycles of growth and decay, expansion and contraction, of a year-long agricultural calendar. The work loops neatly around to end where it began, as another year begins anew. - CM
