Program Notes:

"Real men write twelve-tone music!" -- Dr. Byron Yasui.

I stumbled upon this quote via Facebook on my friend Masaki Hasebe's page. I always feared writing twelve-tone music, but I decided I should man up and write some.
• Of an Unknown is just that. I created the tone row by drawing notes out of a hat.
• Square Wheel of Invention and Chorale has two distinct parts, the first is based off of an invention and the second has more sustained, choral like character.
• Dance-ish simply put, has a dance-like quality to it.
• In Your... to those who have the ear, listen to the right hand to complete the ellipses.
• Swing and a Miss! 12-tone jazz? Don't mind if I do.
