cycles of light is a two-movement work that travels through twelve colors that each represent a time of the day, as shown above in the color chart. The first movement, written for C trumpet, explores from the mauve after sunset to the pitch-black of the midnight. The second movement, written for A piccolo trumpet, covers from the radiant, vigorous orange of the sunrise to the bluish pink of the moment when the sun starts fading.

cycles of light was written for and premiered by Brian Voelz.
