Program note

    <p>The dramatic tension in <em>Paths of Resistance</em> results from the thwarting and redirection of musical trajectories. Specific structural elements, which remain invariant throughout the work, recur in different and contradictory contexts, forging pathways through the densely polyphonic environment. In Paths of Resistance, the surface conflicts occur within the constraints of a formal design which bisects the musical flow into proportionally related time spans. The durations of these spans are embedded in several temporal strata, providing the palpable self-similarity, with regard to formal continuity, which underlies the work's volatile exterior.</p><p><em>Paths of Resistance</em> was written for Geoffrey Morris, to whom it is gratefully dedicated.</p><p><em>Jason Eckardt.</em><br /></p>
