Further info:
This piece was written very quickly, over the course of a weekend. Like many of my recent pieces, this is concerned with projecting extended harmonies and with very restricted motivic material. The piece is based on an octatonic scale, and projects three triads derived from that scale: d-minor, A-flat Major, and B Major. I consider the low motive somewhat of a drone (especially in reverberant spaces).
