The inspiration of this work comes from the concept of light refraction and obfuscation that we experience around ourselves daily, and how this natural phenomenon is reflected in our own minds. Just as a block of glass can refract a beam of light into a colourful spectrum when positioned correctly, musical inspiration is like a continuous beam that the mind can direct and expand. This work uses several instances of indeterminacy to reflect the randomness and occasionally misaligned nature of not only light refraction but also the workings of inspiration on the human mind.
