I wrote this music from 2008-2017. All are acousmatic music. Tracks 5, 6, & 7 are performed live by electronic musicians. The rest are for fixed media. For tracks 4, 6, and 9, I transform two of my orchestral works (Forging Utopia and Up Wind) and a prepared piano piece (Halloween). Three other tracks (1, 3, 8) are inspired by the feeling that our societies (and the planet) are in a Race Against Time. And the remaining 3 tracks each have their own story to tell. I wrote Race Against Time and You Are With Us for a compilation called 60x60, hosted by Vox Novus (USA); Race Against Time 2b emerged from another 60x60; No Ambition was commissioned and performed by Trembling Aeroplanes, live, March 5, 2011 at Inter-Arts Center, Malmö, Sweden; Genni's Laugh was inspired by my soundtrack for Genni Gunns's book trailer for Tracks: Journeys in Time and Place; Serene is a remix of La Petenera – La Serena (Anonymous) by the Montreal group Constantinople from their album Early Dreams.
