Program Notes:

“Myopia 2,” written for the centennial celebration of Boston’s Jordan Hall, is a one-way journey through an ever-changing landscape of textures created by twelve saxophones, sometimes behaving as a collective of distinct individuals, and sometimes behaving like a single, gigantic organism. It is one of an ongoing series of compositions which explore a kind of aural “myopia” in which successive musical events are at first indistinct and then come rapidly into focus.
