Program Note

The music of Outlaws comes from the third movement of my piece Three Scenes from Home, which was inspired by my childhood adventures playing in the woods behind our house. At first glance, the woods may have looked like a small forest with trees and trails, but as a child, those woods provided endless opportunities for imagination and adventure.

My brother, my friends, and I spent many afternoons riding our bikes through the woods. We peered out of our tree house on the edge of the woods and saw a plethora of possible scenes and stories, including our narrow escape from the “outlaws," the neighborhood dirt-bike-riders. They created elaborate trails and jumps in the woods and rode much faster than our BMX bikes could carry us, and when you heard their engines coming in the distance, you rode away as fast as you could or hid for cover. They were clothed in plastic armor and wore racing helmets and to a young boy, these dirt-biker “outlaws” seemed dangerous, but also great stimulus for a child’s imagination.
