Programme Note:
Soft Horizons was inspired by an ocean landscape in Gaspésie, Quebec which I have known since I was a child. Perhaps in music, as in nature, we are sometimes able to have a small glimpse of something that feels as though it is beyond our grasp and as such, appeals to our vulnerability. In this regard, my intention was to draw attention to the silence interspersed between the notes and, on another level focus on the silence which is more ʻweightedʼ and which I feel seems to emanate somehow from within the notes themselves. This approach is painterly and was inspired by the work of Nicolas Poussin in whose work I see rendered the phenomenon in nature whereby one perceives a darkness deeply embedded behind and within the structure of light.
