Programme Note:
Fausto Romitelli was an Italian composer who died tragically at the age of 41 in 2004 after loosing a battle with cancer. Despite my discovery of Romitelli's music being fairly recent during the time when I wrote this piece, I was certain the impact of this discovery would subsequently result in a profound influence on my own work. And so, this piece is my homage to Romitelli, an artist who's work changed the way I thought about writing notes forever. It is a sort of liminal piece in that it is as much a farewell to my way of thinking prior to experiencing Romitelli's music, and also a gateway to a new personal approach of composition. In this piece, I have taken a selection of motifs from Romitelli's work, "Professor Bad Trip" and reworked these motives in a personal context. For me, this synthesis of ideas symbolizes the influence Romitelli's work on my own music. This piece was a signal of a stylistic departure as I began to contemplate future projects. Homage a Fausto Romitelli was written for the Toronto based Thin Edge New Music Collective, and is dedicated to the collective’s founders Cheryl Duvall and Ilana Waniuk. The piece was premiered in Toronto on June 13, 2014.
