For October, a Scarecrow

Today saw excellent progress on the wind quartet “glosses” upon that remix &c. I made of my handbell choir piece, Memories of Packanack Lake. The “combined” work will be called Kurosawa’s Scarecrow (Memories of Packanack Lake). I’ve composed two of the four phrases, which will come in at spontaneous intervals. Probably I shall compose a final cadence, as well. The overall idea is that the two elements are definite/fixed (the fixed media, and the live quartet phrases) but that the way they combine is indefinite, improvisatory.
