Program Notes
A microcosm is considered to be a miniature replica of a larger system, the macrocosm. But since any "-cosm" is inevitably contained within another, the prefixes "micro-" and "macro-" may only be used to describe the relative positions of two systems within a series of infinitely nested systems. Mesocosm features an ensemble of marimbas, oriental percussion instruments, and a harmonic soundscape to explore the way that we perceive scale.
