Program Notes:

As time passes I find myself more interested in unpredictable forms. Ideally I want my pieces to be journeys to get lost in, with strange surprises and a kind of magical logic tying things together into a satisfying whole. Composing Four Pieces was a balancing dance around a few solid themes, a few basic motives, and a few abstract ideas. streets plays with shifting textures and tonal centers. fresco is an exploration of sonority and timbre. chaconne is a simple variations conceived on the electric piano. The last movement is a triptych of contrasting panels: a feisty chase; a mechanical meditation; and a roadside reverie. Four Pieces was composed for the Bellingham Chamber Music Society and premiered at MakeShift art space in Bellingham.
