for 13 solo voices (SS, MzMzMz, AA, TT, BarBar, BB), flute, clarinet, violin, viola, cello, harp, piano
text: Rex Walton (b. 1947)
duration: 8.5 minutes
Colors In Silence explores the introspective, spacious and colorful world of Rex Walton’s poem, and between the colors, a small silence. The 13 solo voices, as well as the instrumental septet paint broad washes of color over the listener’s ears, blurring counterpoint and gesture into an ever changing aural kaleidoscope.
