Quick Overview

"Remnants of Nine" contains a playful mix of motor rhythms, pedal points, big boomy piano and percussion noises, and some tone row theory. The source material for the piece is a fourteen-chord row which are all major or minor triads (this gives the piece a modal sound). In its slow introduction, several melodies are stated as well as fragments of the chord row. Then the work jumps to a fast tempo and shows off its themes and row via a mixture of pedal point sections and orchestrally altered versions of the chord row. The piece feverishly spins forward at full tilt through a maze of short, linked sections until it blazes its brightest in a no-holds-barred ending.
