Programme Note:
Strata II was composed in 2012 for the Nouvel Ensemble Moderne with support from the Canada Council for the Arts. It is the second piece in a series following Strata (2010). Although they are quite different, both pieces feature layers or patterns that overlap with themselves and musical shapes that are created by widening glissando lines played by the violin. Strata II sometimes experiments with ‘horizontal’ layers, where two chords crossfade from one to the other. In writing the piece I was looking for music that was very active but also very calm. More and more in my writing generally, high dense filigree is becoming for me a metaphor for heaven: an infinitely dense and bright place that is also infinitely calm.
