Program Notes: 

Pelagic (2007), for Wind Ensemble is inspired, as many works are, by the ocean. The work is meant to portray images of the sea in various states. Although there is no program for the order of these states, definite moments of calm and rough seas are apparent throughout the work. The word pelagic means “open ocean.”

Pelagic was composed with the aid of athenaCL, a algorithmic composition tool, by Arriza. The work is part of the continued experimentation by the composer using weighted interval sets as a means of organizing pitch.
