About the work

Water Wheel is a 6-part composition for flexible ensemble. It was inspired by the energy and momentum gathered when observing an active water wheel. Each part in the piece represents an individual stream of water as it momentarily aligns with other streams to move the wheel before returning to its independent flow into a larger body of water. The score is notated graphically to enhance this feeling of independence for the performers.
