Red and Green

Red and Green

for orchestra


  • Instrumentation: orchestra
  • Edition: performance material

 
description
Red and Green are complementary colours related to each other. Red and Green also refers to the two colours which cannot be distinguished when you suffer from colour blindness ... something I do, but only to a little extent ... but it has always been interesting for me to ask myself, how ’normal’ people would see the world. Red and Green are two forms of energy (two movements!) which are indeed different, but have strong links to each other – elements of the one are already existing in the other. And last but not least red and green represents traffic lights and so the order of our whole urban world ... similar to zero and one in the computer world and the computer languages. (Thomas Larcher)
