Background

Comments about the work
Watching a fire, one becomes mesmerized by the dancing flames which are continuously varied in their shades of color, in their intensity and direction, and in their size and power. While the fire burns, and slowly but surely changes the make-up of its fueling material, it is also leaping about in various chaotic and irregular configurations of flames and sparks. Though jagged and dramatic, these bursting displays seem nonetheless to bear the shapes of re-emerging patterns. In other words, even though no two configurations of flames and sparks are identical, their appearance is repetitive by nature. It is my intention that the listeners' aural experience of Burn might be analogous to watching the dancing flames of such a fire.Daniel Nelson
