Programme Note:
Ed Burtynsky is a photographer who has travelled the world taking photos of tailings ponds, quarries, oil spills, man-made structures, dams, rivers, etc. The photos are beautiful, yet also distressing when you realize you're looking at the damage we're doing to our environment.When viewing his work at the art gallery a few years ago, I was struck by his work, and the thought that humanity is acting like Icarus, reveling in what we have achieved and our lifestyles, sure that we can fix the damage we do and that we'll be 'just fine.' Those thoughts have inspired this piece

Premiere Information:
26 March 2016, Orpeheum Annex, Vancouver, B.C.
Turning Point Ensemble; Owen Underhill, conductor
