Programme Note:
In a broad context, "Icarus, landing" deals with nostalgia, and how events
beyond human control can alter our lives. There are three main sections in
the piece. The work begins with a dream-like and somewhat nostalgic
atmosphere. This is transformed into a more somber mood, which gradually
disintegrates into disturbed disorder. In the final section of the piece, there is a sense of barely controlled panic, confusion and lack of control, which remains unresolved at the end of the piece.

Premiere Information:
May 31, 2000, Arts Club Theatre, Granville Island, Vancouver, BC: Vancouver New Music Ensemble; Owen Underhill, cond.
