Program Notes: TIDES was originally scheduled to premiere on the island of St. John in the Caribbean sea. I was instructed to write a piece that was somehow reminiscent of the sea, something that was wrought out of my American music voice that could be programmed among other American composers'works. During the writing of this piece, wherein I used a 28 note pasaccaglia underneath several sections and borrowed from the sea culture that we've created and curated over time (sea shanties and songs of sirens, elegies to shipwrecks), there was a horrible hurricane that devastated the island of St. John and our concert there was cancelled. It was in light of this awe-inspiring and terrible power of the sea that I finished this piece and tuned its emotions to match my reaction to the devastation in so many places brought on by the tropical storms of Autumn 2017.
