For a Multi-Metric, Binary, Passicaglia, Rondo in B minor Étudeover a Ground Bass in Crab Form --
Look No Further!
(Ring, Circus, Circle)
| Progress -
Following a slow, opening phrase, a series of equally brief uptempo chromatic motives establish themselves to evoke “Circus-like” images:
capturing a world at play within a play.
Set in a condensed Rondo Form, ”Cirques
Progress” very structure underscores the notion of moving forward -- albeit within an elusive destination.A path who
s growth continues to spin within a game of “Snakes & Ladders” --- to revolve rather than evolve; as if, going in circles.
A comment on our times; or perhaps, a reﬂection of any time?
