Program Notes

Mindscape offers a panorama of one's mental state. It begins with a haunting percussion adagio "fantasy," then abruptly shifts to extended complex rhythmical structures for the full ensemble. This considerable angst resolves into a calmer, familiar andantino of percussion and winds, still with troubling undercurrents of doubt. A brief coda surprisingly concludes the piece. The A/B/A structure of this work underscores how the reciprocal faces of one's personality are inseparable, like two sides of coin.
