For piano and tape. Commissioned by Lisa Moore. The soundtrack is made up of samples of a piano (played both normally, and "inside") retuned to provide a massive harmonic spectrum of 100 overtones based on a fundamental low G#. This reflects an increasing recent concern of mine with a kind of pulsating, rhythmic use of the overtone series. That concern can range from a rather extreme concentration in this piece and Bulb (a piano trio where pulsing glissandos connect nodes in the harmonic series) to a more integrated approach in the large scale vocal and instrumental pieces, where that approach is used often in a looser fashion only in particular areas.
