"Montage Music” was written in memory of Santa Fe artist, Bebe Krimmer, and was inspired by several of her artworks as well as by her radiant and charismatic personality. The work opens with a slow meditative and soulful prologue, titled "Departure” and portrays Bebe’s name musically through a constant pendulum between the notes B-E-B-E.
The second movement is based directly on a large and spectacular artwork titled "Velocity of Rotation." Krimmer’s "Velocity of Rotation" evokes a fantastically colorful Milky Way, a Galaxy traveling through deep and endless black spaciousness. In this movement, I tried to recreate a time-space motion of high velocity, often interjected by exotic landscapes and cosmic encounters.
When Greg DePrince commissioned me to write this composition for the Montage Music Society, he mentioned Bebe's great fondness for jazz. Thus, I chose to write the third movement in an old-time Dixieland jazz style. The movement, which is titled “Bebe’s Blues" opens with a slow and mournful New Orleans funeral march. However, it quickly moves into a faster bluesy mode, ending with a cheerful Second-line dance. In the fourth and last movement, the music returns to the opening cryptogram, musicalizing Bebe’s name again, thus bringing the composition full circle.
