Motordom is my musical interpretation of artist Keith Sonnier’s light installation entitled “Motordom.” It is found in front of the District 7 Caltrans building in downtown Los Angeles. Shifting patterns of red and blue light, generated in neon and argon tubes, develop in horizontal bands all around the lobby of the Caltrans building. The tubes evoke taillights streaming down the freeway.
Originally written for wind ensemble, an arrangement is also available for orchestra.
