Movement I:

Intrigued by unusual time signatures favored by certain Eastern European musicians (especially Bulgarian), this movement is an imagined ‘jam session.’  It has two meter patterns:  the shorter of the two is 7/8-3/4-7/8-3/4 and the full verse is 7/8-3/4-7/8-3/4-2/4-5/8.

Movement II:

Following the advice of Arnold Schoenberg, this movement is the exploration of an interesting chord progression/harmony configuration which was created first, after which I composed the melodic solo.

Movement III:

The first half is based on an experimental guitar solo that featured ‘hammering down’ the strings on frets without the use of the right hand – double notes, on either side of the fret.  The second half is a return to the ‘jam session’ idea and configuration.
