About the work
“Prisma” is strongly influenced by Andean popular music. It is based on pentatonic scales, and includes a middle section in the rhythm of a huayno – one of the oldest and most popular musical genres in the Americas.
Prisma is the Spanish word for prism, a device which can be used to disperse white light into the colors of the rainbow.
“Prisma” is the clear light of a flute unfolding into a flourish of Andean color.
