While driving south on I-25 a few days ago, I saw some stunning visual effects as the sunlight created little rainbows behind the cars. I got some video of it, and composed this one-minute movie soundtrack.
“Sunlight Dancing” is playable by an orchestra, but because it’s a folly, the woodwind section is unusual: Piccolo, two flutes, alto flute, oboe, English horn, and clarinet. The brass is a more conventional four French horns, two trumpets, two trombones and bass trombone; the string section is standard plus a harp; and the percussion consists of glockenspiel, marimba (wood mallets), and celesta. “Sunlight Dancing” was scored in Sibelius, and realized in Digital Performer using Vienna Symphonic Library MIR.
