Program Notes

Phobos and Deimos are the two moons which orbit the planet Mars. In Greek, their names mean “panic” and “terror,” both of which accurately describe this piece. The irregular rhythms, angular harmonies, and frenetic counterpoint all contribute to a sense of frenzied, irrational fear. Above all is a recurring 5/8 pattern which is meant to create the uneasy feeling that some unknown nightmare is lurking just out of sight.
