Programme Note:
When it was suggested that we might wish to make our compositions for
Ensemble Contemporain de Montreal somehow reflect the region from which we
come, I thought immediately of writing a piece about water, something of
which we have plenty of in the Maritimes! The problem then was not to
figure out how stretch the idea of water over ten minutes, but rather to
choose which few of the many types of water we experience to depict in
such a short time. I was given hope that four movements are indeed
evocative when, working on the fourth movement, rain water, in my
grandfathers living room, my grandfather walked in and asked is that music
supposed to sound like rain?
