-Wind Turbines' by Daniel Chisham is a fun and energetic piece that draws upon polyrhythms and innovative percussion techniques. Inspired by the wind farms of Western Oklahoma, it contains rich imagery through the use of variations in texture and mood. Your students are sure to love this piece.
The idea of "Wind Turbines" came to me as I recalled living in Western Oklahoma, during which time they put up a massive wind farm. I was in awe of the enormity of these wind turbines. Each blade measured 45 yards long (almost a half a football field in length). Each wind turbine had three blades and when they were at full speed, it took less than one second for one blade to reach a complete revolution. Watching several of these wind turbines juxtaposed against each other as they rotated in an endless ballet of motion, I could see and hear polyrhythms in my mind. It is this energy that I tried to captivate in Wind Turbines, depicting the polyrhythmic drone of energy against a backdrop of ever-changing melodies created by the skies. It is my hope that anyone that listens to this piece can picture their own Wind Turbines in their mind as this piece is being performed.
