Time-Span (70')

I have chosen Number 14 as the sound example from Time-Span. It is situated at the pivot point in the movement from resonance to monody. Similar to a 17th c. aria, a solo melody of non-chordal design is accompanied by chords, with a fairly fast harmonic rhythm. Before this point, melodic design is more chordal in nature, and after it, melodic design becomes increasingly linear. The performer is Dorle Law.

Nomad (40')

This is the beginning of Nomad, where it sets out the initial phrase and begins weaving it into itself. Unaccompanied alto saxophone, performed by Richard Ingham

Crossing the Dark Rift (30'22")

This selection from the Mayan soundscape, Crossing the Dark Rift is taken a little after the half-way point, in the midst of the high Mayan civilization. We hear a speech being declaimed (spoken in Mayan) in a reverberant space filled with ethereal voices, falling drops, radiant harmonies and drumbeats.
