  1. Very nice, Steven. Of course, I love your textures, your delicacy and attention to detail.

    It’s wonderful in your music to have time to *hear* what is happening; to be able to relax into it, to really *experience* it.

    I’m looking forward to studying the .csd (with an eye toward seeing what might be done in live performance – though perhaps that is obvious).

  2. Hi Art,

    It’s been really great to hear everyone’s experiences of the piece and I appreciate your kind words very much. Having time to really “taste” the sounds and to experiences the flavors, to hear how they mix and can complement each other is something I try to be aware of when working, and I’m very happy that you found that too in this work.

    I hope the .csd files will be of use; I think that the .blue files would be easier to go through as the .csd’s that get generated are fairly large due to the Orchestral Composition library I use, but if you’re just looking at the instruments, the .csd’s should be good for that.

    I’m looking forward to what live performance ideas you may come up with!

    steven
