Programme Note:
With a density as low as 0.9 kg/m3 (0.00561 lb/ft3), metallic microlattice is currently one of the lightest structures known to science. It is made from an alloy of nickel and phosphorus. This piece attempts to create an alloy from two opposing but influential forces: rhythmic, repetitive music with pointillist, random recurrence. Inspired by the unique structure, this pieces also attempts to create an alloy of the strong, metallic and loud, and the crystalline and light. Like its titular influence, the piece is also small in scope, making use of a limited amount of musical material both melodically and rhythmically.

Premiere Information:
Heliconian Hall, Toronto; 9 Apr 2016
Anthony Thompson, bass clarinet; Adam Scime, double bass; Wesley Shen, piano; Dan Morphy, percussion
Pratik Gandhi, conductor
