Programme Notes / Performance Details :

Performance Notes:

  • The tape part is not sequenced, and some rhythmic inflections and/or inaccuracies will be noticeable, but after working with the tape the nuances and "feel" should be apparent. Follow the score while listening to the click track mix for orientation; one may wish to add more tape cues as necessary.
  • There is no click track on the performance tape, the player must rely on the tape part.
  • A walkman (with the CD version) should work for practicing. Be sure to watch volume level and take breaks...Large headphones work best since they block out drum sounds, etc.
  • The tambourine and crash cymbals should be distanced from the main setup, enough to give the impression of distinct stations (perhaps 5 feet or more-see suggested setup in the score)
  • There are a few spots where an instrument has been moved to a different line or spece to make raeding easier (e.g. m. 238).
  • Notes (rhythms, shapes, contours) on the top staff are tape cues.


RH = Right Hand
