Whew… just made it:
Hopefully, someone will be up to the metrical challenge of this one!
Update: SO I was crazy sick last night when I wrote and recorded that. Hence, no video. Here are some notes: First, I thought up the basic idea in the shower in the morning - and almost recorded me banging it out on the wet tile… but the battery in my H1 was dead… Later that evening, between dinner and kid story time, I set up some FM percussion synths on pads, and finger drummed out parts. Eventually writing out the score, and then many many takes to get it in one performance. I speed up a bit in the fast sections, but it should be followable.
I thought a lot about leaving space. I hope the work feels purposely incomplete: It has space to be filled metrically in spots (all the 12/8 sections, played as 4/4 are empty grids), space in instrumentation (there is nothing held, or strongly pitched), and space in frequency (lots of openness in the middle range.)
Metrical plan if you want to follow along:
