‘Superstring Theory’ for two pianos

In Program Notes on October 22, 2018 at 3:10 pm

This work is structured as an “inverse symmetrical series” of 35 tones arranged around Middle C. My style generally emerges from a single cell (tone row) which evolves into two contrasting motifs. These two motifs develop together, and through tension and fusion grow in energy, developing into great waves.
Superstring theory is an attempt to explain all of the particles and fundamental forces of nature in one theory by modeling them as vibrations of tiny supersymmetric strings (Wikipedia). Having been inspired by the title of the theory rather than the theory itself, and at the same time intending to allude to the rich sound produced on the two pianos, I adopted the title of the theory for this work.
