Performance Notes: The Bringer of Life is a programmatic composition representing the Panspermia Theory with musical elements. The sharp rhythms, dense textures, and freely chromatic harmonies are orchestrated in a manner that, in my mind, programmatically represents celestial bodies impacting our planet in it’s beginning stages billions of years past. This work should be performed aggressively, in strict time (no rubato), and with no breaks (rit) in between ‘sections.’ It might be helpful to imagine comets striking our planet’s surface when internalizing The Bringer of Life.
