    Program Notes
    The writing process for Other Kinds began without a theme in mind. Shortly into the piece, however, ideas on the intangible nature of air began to insist their way into the process. In Plato’s Timaeus, the philosopher speculates on the nature of our world through the four classical elements: earth, air, fire, and water. When speaking of air, Plato writes that “there is the brightest variety which we call aether, the muddiest which we call mist and darkness, and other kinds for which we have no name.” The piece was written for and premiered by the Choctaw High School 2019 senior percussion class.
