Program Notes

Out of the Darkness is a seven-minute piece that very much follows the implications of its title: a progress from somber introspection to something much more hopeful. The years from 2020 to 2022 were troubling worldwide, but hopefully a brighter future can be attained in the face of present-day challenges. The work is dedicated to the musical visionary Timothy Reynish, who has had such an important influence on my compositional journey. In particular, the final C major chord encapsulates Tim’s philosophy: "Forte is a light dynamic."
