Description: While a student studying music at Manhattanville College, the music and ideas of Alexander Scriabin inspired me to compose this work. Completed in 2003, this piece was a way for me to pay homage to the composer. Scriabin had always envisioned a unification of all the arts, especially, the unification of music and color. He based many of his later compositions on a six-note chord, which he called the "mystic" chord (spelled C F# Bb E A D). The pitches of the "mystic chord are used as the basis of this composition
