Programme Note:
A work for young ensembles (grades 5 and up) that has an open instrumentation (voices, instruments, or both) for a flexible number of musicians. The work includes a recorded soundscape and a fully composed score for either a large or small ensemble. The score has a structured form and a straightforward and simple melody, unison or with one additional line, and contains some improvisation and interaction with the soundtrack. This format should make it possible for a large number of students, in both large and small schools, to share the rich experience of working with contemporary composition, written by a recognized composer who lives in Nova Scotia. The project is one that is being undertaken in celebration of the 50th anniversary of NSMEA.
