These short piecesallowed me to distance myself from taxing pieces, such as Quanta,and then return with a more objective view. While they are lighter incharacter, they are, nevertheless, an important influence on the restof my music written during that time. The moments are unique inthemselves, and are arranged in order of composition. They arededicated to Leah who showed me that the clarinet can be adynamic instrument.Sand Streams was realized using Csound on the NeXTcomputer. The piece consists of short fragments, or grains, whichjoin together to create streams of sound. Various synthesismethods were used including frequency modulation, additivesynthesis and granular synthesis.The original idea for Quanta came while I was reading aboutquantum theory (in a very simplified form). The piece is structuredaround the idea that the various forces of quantum theory arecontained and exchanged in quanta (packets); hence, each quanta(moment) in the string quartet exists at a different energy level.While in quantum theory energy levels are discrete and separate, inQuanta some moments elide into the following moments. Uponarriving, however, there is no reference to any previous moment..Many thanks to my Mom and Dad; Leah; Joan and Ernie;John, Nancy, Shannon, Elizabeth, Christina and Nicholas; Keithand Liz; Bob; Lise; Sandra; Allison; and everyone else who hashelped in any way.91THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIASCHOOL OF MUSICRecital HallFriday, March 25, 199212:30 p.m.STUDENT COMPOSER CONCERTString Quartet Jacqueline LeggattFine Tempered Oboe Ming Sun HoTrio for strings David ByrneDies Irae Brian Jagger
