Title: ...then time killed the wind... (2008)
Performer: McGill Percussion Ensemble
Instrumentation: Percussion Quartet and live electronics
Premier Performance: Montreal, Canada
Program Notes: This work was the first foray into an exploration in the use of genetic structures as models for music composition. I derived a four cell rhythmic sequence from a genetic sequence found in mice. This sequence was found to be associated with the physiological effects of music. My goal was to see if the use of this genetic information structure could transfer some aspect of its function to the listener.
