A sound-mass composition for large orchestra. Orchestral color and gesture are the main components of this work. The string section is divided over 12 staves throughout the work, and the individual lines are essentially independent. Each wind part is aslo a separate line, as are the percussion parts. Graphic notation and many extended performance techniques are employed throughout, the climax near the end is a massive pile-up of articulated clusters, which disintegrate into a whimper at the close. High difficulty - professional orchestra only.
Commissioned by Western Michigan University School of Music for Detroit Symphony Residency.
