  • Notes & Instrumentation

    ...all things hastened back to Unity uses Greek philosopher Xenophanes' quote as a basis for its structure and motivic development. From an eight measure chord progression and a single arpeggiation pattern come all melodic and rhythmic material for the work.

    Program Notes
    ...all things hastened back to Unity uses Greek philosopher Xenophanes' quote as a basis for its structure and motivic development. From an eight measure chord progression and a single arpeggiation pattern come all melodic and rhythmic material for the work. As with most of my compositions, musical personalities are introduced and developed within an abstract social context. By using organic self-containment, all musical motion and expression maintain relevance to the global macrocosm. In a simple way, the musical language has fractal properties: the overall architecture is illuminated by the actions of each musical moment.
