Program Note

Drawing from science and mathematics, this work is strongly influenced by the idea of focal points in three-dimensional space and the principles of the Cartesian coordinate system. Because of these properties there is an emphasis upon the number seven which is pervasive throughout the work. The Celestial Sphere is known as an astronomical term to define the “imaginary” sphere around the earth that houses the celestial bodies (stars, constellations, stellar bodies).
