About

This single movement work is a combination of the rhythmic techniques of Steve Reich with the harmonic language of Alban Berg, George Perle, et al. I call this new creation, "Pan-tonal phase music." Originally a three movement piece, even a 1996 revision could not save the last two (which I felt were very weak), so the unrevised first movement is all that remains of what I now believe to be a much better (and shorter) creation.
