The idea for Dandelion originally came from the synesthetic color I see at the sound of a trombone, which is a yellow similar to the color of a dandelion. As for the music itself, the three movements of Dandelion represent the plant's life cycle in motivic ideas presented and developed throughout each movement. The first movement portrays the growth of a dandelion from a seed with a three-note motive that grows in length and dynamic over the course of the movement. The second movement conveys the transformation of the flower into a ball of seeds through motives that morph and change shape from the beginning to the end of the movement. The final movement represents the scattering of the seeds by reusing motives from the other two movements in a more repetitive form.
