Written for a Fifteen Minutes of Fame competition, this one-minute competition-winning flute solo Flavours of Color was composed quickly (almost in a few minutes!). Influenced at first by a brief silvery and blue vision, the music grew rapidly when Pamela felt the energy of the flutist for whom the music was composed. This one-minute flute solo begins slowly and builds excitingly to bursts of fast & exciting energetic color throughout. It ends slowly, much like the opening.
Dedicated to the Latvian flutist Alisa Anna Alksne, Pam's most exciting writing is inspired by themes that include places (past and present), and specific people.
An earlier one-minute composition by Pamela, In a Minute! for violin (doubling bongos) and cello was selected for inclusion in a program of sixty 60-second pieces for a program directed by Robert Voisey, titled 60x60 at Spectrum, NYC, in 2012. In 2001, the director Voisey created The American Composer Timeline, the first in-depth listing of American composers, spanning from 1690 to the present, to appear on the Internet.
