PROGRAM NOTES

TRIO in 5- MOVEMENTS (Visions of Space) No. 2, for Flute, Bassoon & Pianoforte �The Frozen Lands of Andromeda �

Combining the forces of chance or unpredictability with moments of predictable structure, the 5-movement ’Vision of Space’ has manifested. The unpredictable elements concern quasi-random pitch selections, duration, degrees of intensity and distribution in time. One result of this compositional approach is that tonality gets sidelined in preference of atonality. Essentially, tonality is a particular expression of the general principles of relaxation of tension. This is a particular ’sound’ state that implies or demands resolution. Harmonically, the fundamental expression of tonality is the tonic/dominant relationship. When the harmonic underpinnings of a composition can be considered a derivative of this relationship or principle, in whole or part, for a short or long time, the music is considered tonal. Atonality then, refer to compositions in which the composer deliberately banishes tonality and admits all other tonal permutations as well as preserving the observable gestalts, musical syllogisms or syntax.
