Timepiece denotes both the celebration of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s one hundredth anniversary and the beginning of a new millennium.

However, the title also refers to the manner in which the composer sees musical time and how that time shapes the work. According to McTee, musical time is not like ordinary clock time but “...more like the kind of time experienced when reading a story.

It’s almost imaginary—repeating, reversing, accelerating, decelerating, and possibly stopping.”
