To give you a rough idea, the concept of the piece is illustrated by the string of gray letters on this page. Reading vertical words from left to right, it says 'several ideas, allusively refer, edited by another...'. Read horizontal words from left to right yields a completely different sentance. This piece places several different musical ideas and inserts them into eachother to create a new musical material. Some of it will sound romantic, some like bartok-ligeti-theft, and some of it like crash-bang-boom avant garde kid stuff. However, I hope that the piece doesn't come across as either a bartok clone or improv piece, and that the piece lies somewhere in the new ideas created by the non-linear intersections of these.

This peice still has been preformed live and you can find a recording of it here.
