Genesis was composed in 1992 during a period of study with Professor Stanley Glasser, Head of Music Department, Goldsmith College, London University. The work is scored for double winds, single brass, strings, 2 percussionists, and images of the sunrise on the composer's favourite New Zealand Beach. Webster's Dictionary defines genesis as "the beginning, the origin." As sunrise occurs at the beginning of the day, Genesis seemed an appropriate title for this work.
