Programme Notes

AfterShock is a short work for solo piano in two connected movements. In the searching and portentous first movement After, extensive use is made of silently held keys to create clouds of sympathetic harmonic resonances. In the second movement Shock, the fuse is lit, and the music explodes into driving insistent rhythms and patterns covering the entire keyboard.
