Programme Note:
Before I came to Japan in 2006, I tended to write slow music, spacious music. Perhaps naïvely and stereotypically, I expected Japan would be a place which nurtured my tendencies toward quietness and stasis. Tokyo, however, is almost never quiet or still; even areas of dense greenery away from the noise of humanity one is still subjected to the scream of insects. So, rather than pursuing quietude, over the past seven years my music has progressed through various phases, all of them incorporating some aspect of controlled noisiness and busyness.This piece, however, is quiet, slow, and long; it returns to my roots, but with considerably more understanding and appreciation of quietness than I had before. the dissonances looks back to my past with the intent to combine my previous aesthetic approach with all I have learned in the past seven years. It is conceived as a set of cyclical variations. Its 108 measures could be divided into groups of 6, 18, and 36 measures, each of those groupings representing a change in timbre, rhythm, or pitch.
