Program Notes

Desde was written in the summer of 2004 and is my first orchestral work. In several of the pieces leading up to Desde, I had begun experimenting with ways of dealing with the problem of culturally biased musical perception, which colours all musical experiences. This came about as I compared my non-classical music education with the formal experiences I received in university, and I wanted to find ways to combine what I felt at the time to be several often-conflicting methods of hearing music.
