Programme Note:
This work for chamber ensemble was commissioned for the final concert of the 2000-2001 season of "New Music Concerts", a concert ironically titled "All Canadian, eh?" In keeping with this, I was moved to create a work using distinctly non-Canadian source material, namely Leonard Bernstein's "West Side Story". The title of course comes from the song whose lyrics feature "I want to live in America". Stylistically however, the source material never really manifests itself in more than an abstract way.

Premiere Information:
May 2001, Glenn Gould Studio, Toronto, Ontario ; New Music Concerts Enemble, Robert Aitken, conductor.
