Program Notes

Harris wrote The Lighthouse in 2018 after enduring a lengthy travelogue by her parents about seeing every single lighthouse in Nova Scotia. During this travelogue, Harris’s sister started pulling supplemental materials from the internet and found drone footage of Port Meadway Head. Harris’s sister said: “I think this video would be better if you had scored it.” This sparked Harris’s idea for the piece, which is built around oscillating textures and minimalist influences.
