About the work

First performance on Saturday December 17th 2005 at St. Leonard’s Church Shoreditch London by CoMA London Ensemble, conducted by Gregory Rose

Technical notes

To obtain the pitch variance, place a pebble in the palm of one hand and strike it with the other: the pebble in the palm should remain tight for high pitches, more relaxed (half open) for medium pitches, and relaxed (open) for low pitches. It is preferable for there to ba a variety of stone sizes for variety of pitches.
