dc.description.abstract A Mouthful of Gravel for chamber orchestra couples a continuous, yet evolving motor rhythm with one large thematic unit, presented "chopped up" throughout the piece with gradually-waning intensity. The harpsichord takes on a prominent role throughout, though the piece is by no means a concerto. Structural signposts appear in the way of verbal mumbling by sections of the orchestra, percussive striking of a metal bowl atop an oven grate, and instrumental mimicry of gravel and speech sounds. The piece is approximately seven minutes long.
