PROGRAM NOTE

The theory of the origin of the universe beginning at a single point know as the big bang, is the inspiration behind this work. In the case of universal expansion, the work is a gradual expansion of the smallest interval into larger ones. In the course of the work, more definitive gestures or even melodies may arise, just as planets and galaxies take form.
