Program Notes

This work contains three movements of differing textures and moods. The challenge and aim of this work was to glean differing characters out of an ensemble with relatively limited color and attack, compared to the myriad of colors in the percussion world.

Spatial movement of sound sources is integral to the composition. At times the instrumental sounds blend together, at others they are in opposition, or moving spatially from side to side.

Curios are odd and curiosity provoking artifacts. Thus, each piece is a resonance from looking at or holding various objects.
