Program Notes

Take an imaginative departure from the typical band piece with this highly programmatic work. Depicting futuristic travel, the music takes the audience to a time when matter is broken down, beamed across space, and then reassembled elsewhere. Your students and audience will agree with Einstein, who said, "The greatest scientists are artists as well."

- Program Note by publisher


Teleportation is a programmatic work depicting futuristic travel whereby matter is broken down into molecules, and then beamed across space and reassembled somewhere else. While this makes for interesting science fiction, it is unlikely to occur in reality, at least not in the way seen on TV. It is possible, however, that a different form of teleportation may emerge based on what physicists refer to as quantum entanglement. In quantum entanglement, the spin of one particle influences the behavior of its entangled partner, even when the particles are separated. Einstein pondered this enigma and called it “spooky action at a distance.”
