A piece that was composed without the computer but nevertheless algorithmically.
Contrapunctic models were outlined on graph paper irrespective of pitch
and then distributed among instrumental layers within an eight-tone mode.
These layers correspond to rhythmical patterns in proportional tempo -
they are tied up with canonical dynamics (parallel to the range
of the contrapunctic models). The whole development follows
the process of an orchestra crescendo.
Instrumentation: 3(2 picc)/2, ehr/2, Es/2, cbsn - 4/2, D/3/1 - timp, 2 pc - pno - 12/12/9/6/6 (divided)
