Programme notes


There are several common English language meanings of the word “mass” coming from a few different Latin or Greek roots. It can mean: religious ritual; music based upon a part of that ritual; an amount or magnitude of matter; a large group of people or objects. This very short piece can be heard as a study in texture, density, time, and meaning. Mass was composed with computer-based means in December, 1996.
