program notes:

Skyline is an impression of Toronto’s cityscape. The piece attempts to synergize a potentially nonsensical mix of ideas in musical terms (anxiousness & coolness, order & chaos, gracefulness & rambunctiousness, etc.), and does this primarily by building upon a basic aesthetic of perpetual motion and increasingly interlocking layers, patterns & textures.

instrumentation:

Picc. – Fl. 1/2 – Ob. 1/2 – Bsn. 1/2 – Eb.Cl. – Bb.Cl. 1/2/3 – Bs.Cl. – A.Sax 1/2 – T.Sax – B.Sax

Tpt. 1/2/3/4 – Hn. 1/2/3/4 – Tbn. 1/2/3 – Euph.(b.c./t.c.) – Tuba

String Bass – Piano

Perc. 1/2/3/4/5 (timpani – suspended cymbal – vibraphone – shaker – triangle – xylophone – bell tree – bongos – glockenspiel – 4 tom toms – 5 temple blocks – cabasa – bass drum)
