Composer's Notes: "Kaleidoscope" is the first movement of "The Mirror Suite". The piece opens with some fun percussive extended piano techniques. There are a variety of themes in this piece, including a quirky opening chromatic motif, a militaristic anthem, a restless middle section, and an abstract "searching" section, which sounds like the hands are asking each other questions. I thought that this concept of themes circulating in and out would lend well to the title, Kaleidoscope. This piece does well as a stand-alone, and does not necessarily need to be programmed with the other movements.
