At last!

You may also download it if you wish, presently available in your choice of mp3 and FLAC, as always. I'm thinking about ditching FLAC because it's one more thing to upload and I stopped believing I could tell the difference some time ago, but for now it stays!

Great work, as always.  There are some fresh elements to it, for sure, but it sounds fully like your work.

The entry of the farfisa organ reminded me of Takemitsu's Valeria.  Do you know it?

Good too see your still hard at work Crud  ;)
Thanks Eddie. It has been longer than I'd like since my last "major" piece but I'm happy to be past my block now.

Thank you. As you know, I was struggling for some time with concerns about becoming redundant in my style. This might have led me to reject or give up on some ideas that could have been fruitful if I'd pursued them, I don't know. They might also have been much easier to realise than this one, so perhaps I was looking for a particular kind of challenge. Having to handle and balance the different classes of sound and in such numbers as they appear in this piece probably forced me to think differently than I have in previous pieces.

Thank you also for introducing me to that Takemitsu piece. I had not even heard of it before. It's quite a mysterious thing, I will definitely be listening to it some more in the near future.
