Composer Note:

The title is from a short futuristic tale I wrote some years back called The Autodaydreamographical Anteriopod using mostly made-up words. The tale was subsequently used in a piece that I performed with the Bang on a Can All-Stars entitled Science Fiction. The Serquent Risadome seemed like a good fit with the music of the new quartet. The opening sentence of the tale is, "Not yet obvicacious or boliferant, it subsequated, or rather anteriorted down the mawg veering toward the location formerly known as Cherenefora, in a seemingly plispephine yet serquent risadome." — Terry Riley
