PROJECT #41: INFINITY
PREMIERE: DECEMBER 19, 2021
ATLANTA WIND SYMPHONY (CHRIS SCHUMICK, CONDUCTOR)
Shooting stars have symbolized many things throughout our Earth’s history:
a new birth,
a change or big event in one’s life,
a brief wonder,
a fleeting moment,
an ending or beginning,
one reaching their ultimate destiny,
and a wish for a better opportunity in one’s life
Throughout our Earth’s history, shooting stars have been one of the most significant prophecies we’ve encountered. This, along with asteroids and the movement of heavenly bodies in the night sky, has always been a fascination of mine. It wasn’t until I decided to dive into the subject of shooting stars that I understood the magic behind the miracle.
With Infinity, I wanted to construct the phenomena of shooting stars flying through an infinite playground- space. As the piece begins, this playground is filled with stars running through the skies. As we transition from dark to light, the stars encounter different scenarios until the end, where they embrace their bright colors and flash across the atmosphere with spectacular grandeur.
