Program Note

The beginning of this piece was composed in part for “Hammer and Nail”, a collaborative project between the IU Composition and Modern Dance departments but subsequently grew into a larger, more encompassing work. The choreographer had expressed an interest in dealing with the use of movement in opposition; this eventually gave me the idea to create a suite based upon a series of impressions. The title of the work refers to the process of 3D rendering as an image that contains elements in a different domain from pixels. These elements are referred to as primitives and reflect the central ideas behind each of the movements.
