OK Feel Good is the result of an opportunity to write for the Aspen Contemporary Ensemble. The friendship and camaraderie I experienced that summer imposed itself onto my writing—so the work grew into a colorful rhythmic playground, presented with a grin and a wink. In 1999, at the request of Eric Whitacre, I transcribed the work for winds and percussion. My wish is that the original sense of glorified game-show music has been unaltered, and hopefully even amplified.
