trio ~ bass flute | mellophone | harp + electronics

I worked on this one for a while; first developing about 100 variations of a single motive.  Once I had all these, I began thinking of the large form and devised a grid where I mapped the ensemble sections over the electronic environment.  As a by-product of this process I discovered that the length of the piece would be around 22 minutes.

The electronics had been growing along with the other sections, and I fine tuned those parts so as to last also 22 minutes, or 450 measures with a quarter note = 81 bpm.
