Programme Note:
The piece Distortion is centered on the percussion, which directs and controls many aspects of the music materials produced by the five instruments: clarinet, flute, piano, violin and cello. In the beginning, all five instruments have different music characteristics, however, as they slowly emerge into one similar character, the percussion interrupts the movement and forces them to return to their opening gestures.

Premiere Information:
November 1998, Made in Canada Festival, Toronto, Ontario; Nouvel Ensemble Modern, Rosemary Thomson, conductor.
