Quick Overview

Phenomenon was inspired by mysterious and unexplainable natural phenomena, such as the Aurora Borealis, the Bolides, and, especially, the Naga Fireballs of Thailand. My intent is to express the atmosphere and sensations of such natural phenomena. I am frequently fascinated by the forces of darkness and brightness, of light in the dark, and I try to convey all of these energies. The meaning of Phenomenon lies in the timbres of the instruments and in the chaotic texture, which tries to create an impression of mystery. Phenomenon is also an experiment in sounds within other sounds, and in the use of moving notes within sustained notes. The surface of the music is critical, and the distance between the instruments and dynamics (crescendo and diminuendo) are the main factors that create atmosphere and timbre. More explanation than this would betray ?the mysterious and the unexplained?.
