"Medieval stone-cutters would strike rock, making it 'ring' in order to judge its worth for construction.

"I've discovered that my work as a composer has much in common with this branch of civil engineering - exploring and evaluating the behaviour of material on the verge of splitting apart. The composer searches out well-defined forms, strong and clearly cut, alternating movements and interaction marked by tension and release.

"The material which I use is subjected to restraint, to enormous pressure, until it finally sunders, shatters, transforms. Brought to its breaking point."
- Gilles Gobeil, Montréal, June 1994
