Reuben JELLEYMAN: Hue Saturation and Brightness

From NZ Composer Sessions, 12:00 am on 25 January 2018

Hue, Saturation, and Brightness form a cylindrical co-ordinate system for colour.

Gretchen Albrecht’s Golden Cloud (1973) provided a stimulus, and point-of-departure for the composition of this work, which was commissioned by the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra for their 2017 concert series.
