Program Notes

Commissioned by a consortium of 37 ensembles around the world, this concert opener paints a music picture of the microscopic world of the atom and the entrancing, almost choreographic, movement of its electrons.

- Program Note by publisher

Ions with a negative charge when examined show an almost choreographed dancing frenzy of electrons. This piece illustrates musically what I believe this would sound like, based on only two melodic/rhythmic motives; the first the ostinato on the four pitches (Do - Re - Fi - Sol) and the scalar line that is heard first as an interjection, then as the dominant melodic idea.
