Program Notes

Ignite! represents the analogy between starting a fire and starting the creative process. Small initial ideas expand in range (using algorithmic processes relating to voice-leading and duration) to utilize the entire ensemble. However, the first grandiose announcement of arrival fizzles under its own weight, only to restart and follow a slightly different and accelerated path to a bombastic conclusion.
