composer's note:  The melodic, harmonic, and formal structures of the work are all informed by the interval of a perfect fourth, used as a way of structurally offsetting key areas contrapuntally. I exploited the interval's chameleon-like relationship to the tonic and layered closely related key areas to create vertical configurations that are rich in timbre and melodic content. This allowed me to adeptly move in and out of structurally significant foreign key areas. The work is dedicated to David Gompper and the Center for New Music at the University of Iowa.
