Some more classical compositions...

Here is another movement from Quark Suite: Movement 2, Down, a study of canons, the major canon in the movement being a retrograde canon [frequently called a "crab canon] where the counter melody is the melody backwards.

The main canon is connected with various other canonic forms and after the main canon is stated in unison, each bar of that section is a retrograde canon.

This recording was a first reading at my home on a small cassette player by two Bangor Symphony players...toward the end you will hear me clinking the cover of a glass jar filled with Werther's Butterscotch [my addiction at the time] as I listen...also the end of the recording is cut off as the tape ran out!

I am presently preparing to have the entire Quark Suite re-recorded.
