Program Notes

This new piece, commissioned by the Greatbatch School of Music, is designed to highlight the skill and dexterity of the solo vibraphonist.

- Program Note from Houghton College

The Principle of Polarity embodies the idea that everything is dual, everything has two poles, and everything has its opposite. All manifested things have two sides, two aspects, or two poles. Everything "is" and "isn't" at the same time, all truths are but half truths and every truth is half false, there are two sides to everything, opposites are identical in nature yet different in degree, extremes meet, and all paradoxes may be reconciled.
