On this album, the PRISM Quartet and Grammy-winning ensemble Partch explore the spectra that make up instrumental sound by spurring the creation of a body of music combining saxophones and percussion, including reconstructed Harry Partch instruments, originally built by the American composer and inventor between 1930 and 1972. Partch’s Instrumentariam is full of fantastical, visually striking creations such as the eucal blossom, spoils of war and cloud chamber bowls

Color Theory is inspired by the spirit in which scientists and visual artists have studied color throughout the centuries. In 1671–72, Sir Isaac Newton discovered the origin of color by shining a beam of light through a prism, splitting it into the colors of a rainbow. Visual artists have used color theory to develop a body of knowledge about mixing pigments to create color combinations that provoke powerful emotional responses. CONCERT PRISM and Sō Percussion premiere the jazz-influenced Blue Notes and Other Clashes by Steven Mackey and a new arrangement of Donnacha Dennehy’s The Pale. Mackey, who previously composed masterful works for both ensembles separately, creates the first major octet combining saxophone and percussion quartets.

The PRISM Quartet presents Color Theory . : Saxophones and Percussion following the 2017 release of the group's critically acclaimed COLOR THEORY album with So Percussion and Partch (XAS Records). Color Theory . spotlights Susie Ibarra and Tyshawn Sorey, groundbreaking ers who join PRISM as soloists in world premieres of their own works. compositional, and improvisatory practices to the project.
