dc.description.abstract This composition is a work for harpsichord (two players), flute, clarinet, violoncello and tape. In four sections, interspersed by three electronic interludes, the timbral interplay among the four live instruments is exploited, with particular emphasis being given to the sonic effects achieved by the careful manipulation of the interior of the harpsichord. As such, the two harpsichord players have distinctive roles in the ensemble: one of them operates the manuals in a more or less conventional fashion, while the other performs precisely indicated functions inside the instrument.The novelty of the latter activity has necessitated the invention of a few new notational symbols, which are employed throughout the score, Another uncommon notational device is the omission of bar lines, in an attempt to express the independence of contrapuntal lines within the piece.Ball State UniversityMuncie, IN 47306 en_US
