Programme Notes

There are two ideas contained within the title of the piece – “ignition” refers to an image of colorful sparking lights that set varying processes (such as mechanical movement) in motion, and “positive” to the dominant character that pervades the piece.

This work utilizes aspects of the techno musical genre in terms of the rhythms and harmonies that are employed in certain sections.
