Program Notes

The Marbled Midnight Mile is a companion to my earlier works Dusk and First Light - the three of them together form a loosely-related "night cycle." This newest work is the middle of the cycle, evoking the myriad wandering thoughts that occur in the solitude of night, and the title suggests an extended inner journey through a shifting mental landscape. There is no singular program or "story" to the piece; rather I hope the listener finds his or her own associations and memories from long nights spent in quiet contemplation. The music makes only modest technical demands of the ensemble, but is a perfect vehicle to expand a young band's musical maturity and sensitivity.
