Programme Note:
warm stones is a remembrance and reflection of my time spent in Japan. I wrote it at my mother’s home in Halifax, immediately after returning from 18 months living in Tokyo, with my memories fresh but palpably fading as I reacquainted myself with life in Canada. The music is therefore almost always distant and indistinct, never quite within reach. Perhaps the biggest memory to influence this piece is my memory of Japanese food, specifically the Zen-derived kaiseki cuisine, in which many tiny, delicate dishes come together to make up a meal. The structure of warm stones is modelled on a kaiseki meal; many distinct, tiny musical ideas come together to form a piece. DJ
