Programme Note:
A hypernova is an extremely energetic supernova. Hypernovas occur in stars with a mass greater than 30 times that of our Sun. Like in a supernova, as the star runs out of fuel it can no longer support itself under its own gravity. It collapses and subsequently explodes, sending out matter in all directions. This releases more energy in seconds than our Sun will in its entire 10 billion-year lifetime.Musically, this inspires collapsing and exploding musical elements, explored through chords, rising and falling lines, rhythmic interplay, and literal movement of the sound sources themselves. Hypernova was commissioned by and dedicated to flautist Michelle Cheramy. The piece can also be performed as a solo work with Flute 1 live accompanied by flutes 2 through 5 pre-recorded.

Premiere Information:
