The piece is based on meditations and ponderings of a few notes from the motif in the first four measures of the first movement. I manipulated, re-arranged and plied the intervals and harmonies through out all three movements. All three movements are themselves ruminations of the material. I wanted to see if working with a limited palate one could develop an entire work.Noun1.rumination - a calm, lengthy, intent consideration musing, reflection, thoughtfulness, contemplation, reflexion
