Sheet Music: Score
Colouring in the sky suite (Part 1) : version for orchestra with alto saxophone doubling baritone saxophone solo / Mark Clement Pollard.
by Mark Pollard (2003)
This work is inspired by the art making process of Utopia region
aboriginal artist Emily Kame Kngwarreye which involved the
creation of an image that was then painted over with an explosion
of dots. This process of "colouring in" gradually masked what lay
beneath to create another overlaid story. Her works are
spiritual with a strong sense of serene beauty and harmony. This process of colouring and becoming is an essential element of this concerto in which the resonant and melodic qualities of the solo instrument gradually unfold an underlying theme which is coloured and masked to create a "sound snapshot" of the colouring in of the night sky.
