This is a revised and developed version of an earlier work of the same name. It was commissioned by a semi-professional ensemble, who were very keen on the work.....but they cut off communication during the pandemic lockdowns, and never got back to me.  One gets used to that sort of thing.

If listening to the synth recording, I would suggest following the score to be aware of what sounds and effects are actually being called for, as opposed to the shit sounds the synth plays.  My Sib program also was stuffing up the percussion parts; and come to think of it, it isn't mixed or balance.... follow the score!

PS, were this work to be performed, I would probably double the wind.
