Elements is intended to portray, in a series of brief musical vignettes, something about the nature of matter. Each movement focuses are one of the common and familiar of the family of elements – gold, silver, carbon, xenon, oxygen, mercury and copper. I did not attempt to directly correlate notes to the underlying nature of these elements. Rather, I wrote the music in response to my own feel for what these elements represent – the lustre and warmth of gold, the bright shine and quickness of silver, and so on.
