Composer's Notes

In this piece there is no score, only separate parts. There is a co-ordination between them that is approximately indicated by the rehearsal letters. They indicate, sometimes quite closely, other times with greater latitude,points of coming together. Rehearsing is about discovering the mutual pacing of the parts and the gradual recognition of sensed co-ordination. However it is not the intention of the rehearsal letters to indicate a necessarily exact arrival as a performance goal. The point of the notation is to allow the piece to unfold as two simultaneous solos which some- times seem to be playing very similar material, other times not. —Nils Vigeland
