This is a solo (four tuned toms and large bass drum) accompanied by drone instruments. The music consists of repeating patterns (gradually modified in timbre and/or dynamic), ritornelli, and suggestions for improvisational extensions of the materials. Because of the open nature of the notation, the piece may be used in concert or for accompaniment to dance.
