Description:
Program note (English): The quartet is an object which is seen as being complete in itself, but which can be performed within a tape environment. There are four different tapes from which the quartet may choose any one for a performance. Because the tapes differ both from the quartet and each other, it is expected that the quartet will be perceived in radically differing ways because of its context - just as the perception of a painting may be vary sigificantly depending upon where or how it is displayed. The instrumental parts are always hovering in or around 'g', sometimes as a repetitive texture, sometimes as a texture generated by fractal geometry in which 'g' is a starting level from which each instrument may plunge or explode multi-dimensionally. The quartet is sectional, composed not so much with a sense of narrative or developmental 'line-through' but rather as a series of energy states of states of being. The sections are not referential, they simply are. While they are related to one another
with respect to some material or aspects, they primarily appeal to a listener's consciousness of their own experiential inner time-space. - JAMES FULKERSON
