Well, yesterday, I fell of a ledge in my back yard, made a nice 5 point landing, have various new blue & purple skin colorations, lost the use of my arm for 12 or so hours, etc. The adrenal rush caused by the affair certain induced a great state of wakefulness and full alert. So I finished this, the first of about 7 parts.
Such an inspired mood, Richard! I'm sorry it was brought about by the fall; I sincerely hope you are alright. Love those tritones. It's such a beautifully uneasy feeling you've created, however mildly irritated, as if below the surface. Very tingly. I look forward to the next parts (hopefully equally inspired by stable footing)!
Composing would certainly be dangerous work if this were the process--I can picture it as a Monty Python sketch. "Oh I'm fine! You see, I'm working on a suite..." =splat!=
