Into the Void serves as a call to adventures; the commissioning and “sending forth” of brave travelers. It could bring to mind those historical or legendary moments when brave men and women have been summoned and send out on bold quests – whether to discover a new continent, to walk on the moon, or to travel beyond the stars. On a more musical note, this piece is basically a fanfare, march and chorale. Whether the performers and listeners search for the deep metaphorical meanings in the piece, or ponder the musical structure, I hope the journey is fun.
