Work for Classical Guitar and Live Electronics. Inspired by glaciers (and the rivers that run through them), this piece is built entirely on a tone row subject to conventional transformations. The electronics have the ability to stop, slow and reverse time of the guitar’s output and so can run through the tone rows independently, and can freeze and morph them into a backdrop of cluster chords. The middle section is reminiscent of a jazz walking bass (but still entirely serial), which transform into an ensemble interplay of guitar and electronics.
