Volt was originally composed in 1987 for synthesizers, electric bass, MIDI percussions, marimba and tape. Volt was commissioned by the Toronto ensemble Arraymusic and premiered at the Rivoli Club in Toronto on April 4, 1987, during a special event of the regular concert series. The concert was entitled Modern Electrics and was made of works with pop or rock influences written by composers from the contemporary music sphere. Thanks to Henry Kucharzyk.
