Liner notes

Written for FAWM 2006. This one is substantially grittier than previous efforts and uses a lot of weird synthetic percussion. The lengths of percussive sections are taken from the Fibonacci sequence: 1n bars, 1n bars, 2n bars, 3n bars, 5n bars, etc. You may be able to hear the entry of the initial percussive motive at the beginning of each section. (This formal conceit breaks down about halfway through.)
