This piece began life as an outgrowth of some projected piano studies that had been pestering me for completion. As I worked on the piece it began to take on interests of its own and I became preoccupied with possibilities absent from the original studies. Consequently they remain impatiently awaiting realisation, with the harmonic framework as the only link with this piece.
This piece has something to do with the following ﬂeeting thoughts and obsessions:
Limits Restraints Constraints
Making sections and phrases rhyme in some way
Non-literal yet recognisable repetition
Something a little bluesy in the background
Just ‘beyond’ the piece
Just out of reach
Ground as the all-pervasive harmonic and rhythmic frame
with its concomitant restrictions
All sections should have shadows of the others in them
Changing States . Instability. Things threatening to disintegrate or evaporate.
At any moment.
Decay, congealing, freezing, seizing up, thawing, unravelling.
Certainties dissolve into questions.
To quote Pete Wylie “Just when you think you’ve got it all nailed down, you ﬁnd it’s all screwed up”
