WORDS and MUSIC, May 1998
"Ahead by a Century”
“As composers we don’t have to reinvent the wheel. The whole vocabulary is there for us to use. We must have the tools of the entire 20th Century at the tips of our fingers…
We’re past the stage of research into sound and resources, and we’ve lived through the provocative aspect of music. That was authentic right after the war, perhaps, when there was a rejection of the old values. But we’re not looking for new values now. We are at a point of consolidation.
Originality today is dependet upon the capacity to present alternate, not necessarily new, realities.”
