This piece is dedicated to Jim Petercsak and won the 1976 PAS composition contest. The first movement is written on double staves with double stops on lower stave, but can be played with two mallets. The entire second movement is played with fingers and brushes. The third movement is very melodic and uses 4 yarn mallets. The fourth movement contains several meter changes and is difficult to count. Many polyrhythms throughout the piece. Extensive pedaling in movements 1 and 3.
