Composer James David

Octarine Spark

For Wind Band. Duration: 7:00


Inspired by the “Discworld” novels by legendary British writer Terry Pratchett. The alternate reality of the magical Discworld has been a companion for generations of readers around the world. “Octarine” is the color of magic and sparks of this color are given off when a magical reaction takes place. Only wizards can see the “octarine” portion of the light spectrum. Through a musical pun, much of the pitch material is based on an ascending natural scale which contains eight notes (including the octave!).
