Composed in memory of David Gamper, who was Schwartz's student at Bowdoin College from 1964 through 1970, this work is to be performed simultaneously with a CD (Audio) recording of sounds created by Gamper. The background recording features a collection of sounds created by Gamper during his college years that have been assembled, edited, and processed by Schwartz into an accompaniment for a live performer. The score is a set of instructions for the performer, including improvisation notes from the composer.  David Gamper (1945-2011), Bowdoin class of 1967, was a composer-performer-sound artist, among others, was a member of the highly influential Deep Listening Band along with Stuart Dempster & Pauline Oliveros.
