Work Overview

This piece is designed around processes of indeterminacy using cards as the basis for pitch material, each card from A through to Queen represents a different pitch based on a set theory (C=0, C#=1 and so on) while the King represents a wild card. Each movement is quite short and represents a different characteristic of a suit of cards - clubs, diamonds, spades and hearts.
