    Program Notes
    Spiraling Light was inspired by an event that took place in Norway in December of 2009, when a blue mysterious beam of light with a grayish spiral emanating from it appeared in the night sky. Initial speculations suggested it was a fireball meteor, a rare never-before-seen Northern Lights variant, or even a wormhole opening up. Unfortunately, it turned out to be much less exciting than any of those things – a failed Russian missile test. Spiraling Light attempts to capture this brief moment of mystery, uncertainty, and intensity.
