Program Notes

A common thread running through a lot of my music is a rationalization and / or conceptualization of sound with images. This piece was my first experiment with this approach. In the work, I used the the hieronymus bosch triptych 'The Temptation of St. Anthony' as a point of departure. Oddly enough, I tried to create a horizontal reading of the painting: imagine a verticle cursor sweeping across the painting from left to right. I translated aspects of the painting's density, texture, emotion, and symbology into sound, and scultped these ideas into a tapestry of dramatically surging and flowing sound masses.
