Program Notes

In Waves is inspired by the landscape of Nova Scotia through ocean, fog, wind, rock—feeling the rawness of the elements up close. There is a meditative quality to the movements of the waves, bringing a sense of calmness to this open landscape. Tidal movements influence the shapes of lines and form, shifting towards and away from peaks, always in motion.
