Composer's Notes  
<<rewind<< is inspired by the image of analog video tape rapidly scrolling  backwards with fleeting moments of skipping, freezing and warping. The  original version, for orchestra and tape, was composed in 2005 for choreographer, and Artistic Director of Hysterica Dance Company, Kitty McNamee. A distinct characteristic of McNamee’s work is its striking and innovative use of physical gestures and movements that recur throughout the course of a piece to build and bind its narrative structure. This use of repetitive gestures is utilized in  the musical language and structure of <<rewind<<.

<<rewind<< was premiered at J.C.Borden Auditorium, New York, 2005, by the Manhattan School of Music Composers Orchestra with conductor,  David Gilbert.
