This piece is for a least a string octet, that is to say for at least 2 violin 1s; at least 2 violin 2s; at least 2 violas and at least 2 cellos. Of course, more of any of these is fine, however a general balance is preferable. This series requires that each wavy line is performed by at least two instruments to create an imperfect sound filled with transient, but subtle frequency clashes. This sound is used to create the piece. Premiered by Orchestra Armonia at Sonic Boom 2010 in Vancouver, April 10.
