*Anteriorities was written at the request of pianist, conductor, and composer Alcides Lanza, who has been a teacher of mine as well as a friend and co-conspirator in the gems ensemble. The title (actually anterior to the work’s composition) refers to a sense of fanfare, of beginning, of introduction. The tape part was realized at the McGill University Electronic Music Studio in May of 1989. (BL, 1989)
