Program Notes

Original work scored for flute, violin, cello, acoustic jazz bass & percussion. Music inspired & thematically based on the idiomatic & motivic form of a 6/8 masquerade music.  An artful integration of overlapping, enfolding polyphonic & polyrhythmic motifs that are intertwining with intervening structured ornamentations of symbolic dance movements, imageries, themes & improvisational elements in a contemporary voice & form.
