dc.description.abstractFrom the performance notes: Earthrise / Moonrise is a symphonic poem that explores the relationship of two celestial bodies. The reigning scientific model is that our moon was once a part of the Earth's crust, and that it `broke off' when the Earth was struck by a large object; that an outside force tore out a `rib' from the adama, the mud. Interpretation marks are intended to suggest a kind of kinetic or potential energy exhibited in the ongoing dance between these two bodies. The tempi are open to interpretation in service of the performance, but the ratio between these tempi must be kept consistent. The ratio between these tempi establish a temporal hierarchy that is directly analogous to the over-arching modal scheme.
