In contrast, Relative, Saturated with vapor(short excerpt)
The sonic material in this piece ranges from complex, metered structures to longer passages containing only subtle timbral shifts and beatings between pitched instruments tuned less than a quarter tone apart. Formally, ideas take shape, explode, then re-form, fluctuating between stability and chaos. Each player has a similar set of instruments available, and in some ways the piece seeks a richness from subtle differences and blending between the instruments as a "choir." Although most instruments were strictly specified in the score, some sections call for the players to take an active role in finding resonant objects within some loose parameters.
