Pañc hazar chakra kai andar or Within Five Thousand Cycles is a piece for Yamaha Disklavier that attempts to explore the instrument within the context of John Cage inspired piano preparations (utilizing machine screws, flat mudguard and standard washers, plastic and brass olives, paper clips, cup head bolts, hex full nuts, white board and fold back clips), North Indian 'Hindustani' derived cyclic rhythmic patterns (juxtaposing two contrasting talas: Jhumra, 14/4 or 3 + 4 + 3 + 4 and Champak sawari, 11/4 or 4 + 4 + 1½ + 1½), analogue synthesis (including Arp 2600 LFO/Sine Wave filter sweeps, envelope filtering and Mu-tron Bi-Phasing), digital effects processing (ring modulation, distortion, 4-band eq, chorus, reverb, delay), studio generated harmonic resonance or 'sympathetic vibrations' and modern digital hard-disk recording technology.
