Program Notes

Inventions have changed our lives. Whether it be the wheel, electricity, car, telephone or the microchip, inventions have allowed us to live better, and sometimes longer, lives.

This piece is about the path or journey to these great discoveries. The music is always moving forward-advancing. Even with slight sidetracks or failed experiments, the journey presses on, the journey of discovery.
