In some ways, a deceptively easy work, till one gets part way into it. Apart from interlocking complex times, there are then sections of not quite improvised, but controlled structured sound effects (nothing for a classical player to be worried about).... in contemporary improvisation, nothing is wrong; in this 'improvisation' is playing with notated motifs.
Instrumentation: 2 Violins, 2 violas, cello, 2 percussion (tubular bells, antique cymbals, Almsglocken, tabla, or ghatam and/or frame drum).
Duration: 14 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — Complex morphing rhythms (10/4 & 5/2) some technically challenging passage work for the strings.
Commission note: Commissioned by the Elektra String Quartet for a collaborative project with Blair Greenberg on Table from the "Paranormal Music Society"
The composer notes the following styles, genres, influences, etc in relation to this work:
Indian rhythmic and melodic structures, hypno-ambience and contemporary sonic thrashing!
