program notes
 
 
Jiyeh is a small coastal town in Lebanon built upon the ancient city of
 
Porphyreon, which
 
is said to be the place where a giant fish delivered Jonah to the shore.
 
 
On July 14th 2006 a coastal power station in Jiyeh was attacked in an
 
Israeli air strike
 
causing over 20,000 tons of oil to spill into the Mediterranean Sea.
 
Although there has
 
been relatively little information regarding the ecological impact of this
 
maassive spill a
 
series of sattelite photos show the dispersion pattern of the oil. These
 
patterns appear
 
as Baroque-like ornaments that distort the contour of the Lebanese coast
 
line. The
 
music represents the evolution of these patterns and providing an auditory
 
display of
 
the enormity of this disaster.
 
 
bio
 
 
Jonathan Berger is a composer and researcher. Berger's research includes
 
developing
 
methods and tools for effective auditory display of complex data.  His
 
recent recording
 
of chamber music for strings will be released this Spring by Naxos
 
recordings on their
 
American Masters series.
