In an email exchange i shared with Brad Wentworth 3 elements of the work:
1. There should be dissonance of sounds that do not usually coexist.
2. The whole work should be 35-40 minutes.
3. Three Quarters of the way through the piece, there will be one section of unison. That section should be a different sonic world.
Round 1: Ideas
Round 2: Ideas Expanded and then sent to second musician Rob Jost for improvisation on bass, horn and/or guitar.
Brad knew we wanted Rob, to also have a moment of isolation, highlighting his interpretation of being in-between and inside worlds without any sonic elements to respond to. The section solo grew out Rob's improvisation, his building of a world.
SOLO Round 1
Round 3+: Ideas get cleaned and compiled, these are the final versions.
