Program Notes

The composition process for Time Streams (After Tricycle) began with a simple question, "What if...?" I wondered what would happen if I took the opening measures, climactic measures, and basic compositional materials from a piece I had written in the past and attempted to "start over." I wanted to see how differently the piece might turn out, even with many of its basic elements remaining the same, if I allowed that material to take on a different life. In this way, the new piece represents a sort of alternate reality, or time stream. This new "version" of Tricycle is much darker than its predecessor, and contains more of a sense of transformation over the course of the piece, moving from dark to light.
