Work Overview

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.
