Program Notes I have long admired the poetry of James Tate for its surreal imagery and absurd twists of narrative. Poems from his collection The Oblivion Ha-Ha served as the text for my first and only song cycle. Upon learning of his death last year, I decided to revisit his works, this time as inspiration for a set of short instrumental movements. I selected three of his poems which evoke moments in time, snapshots of experiences by the ocean at noon, sunset, and evening.
