Program Notes

“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.” – H.P. Lovecraft

- Program Note from Ball State University Symphony Band concert program, 25 March 2016


Like so many, I have been fascinated by the writings of H.P. Lovecraft for a long, long time. Innsmouth, Massachusetts - 1927 is the first part of a planned triptych Three Places in (Lovecraftian) New England. The piece is an homage, of sorts, to both Lovecraft and my other favorite curmudgeonly, New England writer, Charles Ives.

- Program Note by composer


Innsmouth, Massachusetts, is a fictional town created by American author H. P. Lovecraft as a setting for one of his horror stories, and referenced subsequently in some of his other works and by other authors who wrote stories taking place in the world Lovecraft created with his stories.
