"I want to tell you that I LOVE your music. I always love harmonies and Baroque-ish meloies that have a lot of repetition but that progress and transform and grow. It reminds me of an organic, living thing. The music makes me feel good inside, right somehow. It's hypnotic. I especially like the second part that begins rather Church-like but is really more cosmic (for lack of any better word) than that. I could listen to it most of the time and not become weary. When Abbey Road came out I wanted to listen to it every single day, because it ironed out the day's fractures and kinks ... I really think you can do that too." (Virgina Hailey, Athens GA)
I began writing this music in the mid-1970’s, when music that eventually became known as "Minimalism" was a relatively popular musical style. At that time, I was searching for a new and more expressive musical vocabulary, and at the same growing frustrated at the difficulty of obtaining well-rehearsed performances.
In 1976, I began writing for a keyboard ensemble, including a couple of compositions that eventually coalesced into Drastic Measures and A full Quarter Hour. Then in 1982, an Apple II computer with special audio hardware became available to me, providing a means of producing note-accurate performances by working directly with the computer. At the same time, I learned to write software in order to develop the tools needed to make this way of working practical. I completed 5 more revisions over 23 years- 1982, 1987, 1991, 1994. 2003 - adding new ideas and taking advantage of new technology as it became available.
