Programme Note:
With the help of neighbours and a precarious arrangement of plywood and castors, we hauled an old cast iron bath tub from the back garden to the curb. Within hours it had vanished. Scooped up by scrap metal scavengers the tub was on its way to a new life as...girder, park bench, pipe, rebar, nail, hammer...who knows.
This piece is a musical foundry. My focus is on metal: sawn, hammered, melted, poured, moulded, cast, polished... The melodic material is based on pitch analyses of the sounds of drilling, hammering and sawing. I want to melt the material down to a metallic gleam.
Foundry was commissioned by Continuum with funds from the Laidlaw Foundation.

Premiere Information:
February 17, 2004 Music Gallery, Toronto; Continuum with conductor Patrick Gallois
