Programme Notes / Performance Details :

Hittade (hee-ta-day), meaning found in Swedish, is a musical representation of my personal growth during my first month living in Piteå, Sweden. When one moves to a new environment it is often intimidating and overwhelming. I found solace when closing the door to practice and compose, for the instruments were the only things familiar to me in the foreign land. The piece begins with an ethereal improvisation by all members of the ensemble, building tension and anticipation for what is to come. The ambiguity is then broken by a simple, rhythmic motif played by the marimbist in E dorian. The piece melds from one distinct section to another, as if telling a story of discovery and exploration.
