Programme Note:
"In 1994, Mississauga mayor Hazel McCallion announced an international competition to design a tall residential building that would redefine the skyline of Mississauga, Ontario. Ninety-two submissions and more than a decade later, the winning design was unveiled. The two Absolute World towers have oval floors that rotate as they rise, curving 209 degrees of a circle to create undulating shapes that seem to be moving. Within days, the curvaceous larger tower was nicknamed “Marilyn Monroe”. These buildings tickle me whenever I see them, whether I’m glimpsing at them from the highway or standing under them by the Living Arts Centre. This is architecture that dances in the wind; here is my idea of the music they might be dancing to.

I would like to thank the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the Mississauga Symphony Orchestra for the opportunity to turn glass and steel into music, for world-class musicians to play in beautiful concert halls"
