Programme Note:
Mixed Steps was written in the span of a month for the ARRAYMUSIC 2001 young composers workshop. Throughout the first movement you'll hear distinct shifts between freer atonal sections and jazzy bits. In the second movement the tune 'Giant Steps' is used as a cantus firmus for a slow and static movement. The third movement brings back a few elements of the first and second. I've decidedly taken a change in my compositional approach since this piece was written in lieu of more experimentation, extended techniques and freer sound worlds but still maintaining, as in this composition, an element of underlying harmonic movement.

Premiere Information:
June 3, 2001, The Music Gallery at St. George the Martyr, Toronto; Arraymusic / Young Composers Workshop 2001
