dc.description.abstract Basically, this is not what we were looking for... is a piece written for symphony orchestra, which explores the option of maintaining interest in the music through the use of one simple motive (a cluster, which is repeated several times). That motive is presented in the brass section against a contrasting motive in the woodwinds, but very soon the woodwinds motive is abandoned, and will only be returned to towards the end, in rhythmic durations eight times as slow as it was presented at first. The cluster motive is kept in its original form throughout most of the piece, varied primarily by dynamics, duration, and a changing of background. The pitch level of the cluster remains static for the bulk of the piece.
