Trailer (2009)

Compensating-system tuba

This is the first piece on the solo CD/LP States of Rushing. Originally the second part of Release, the second piece on the CD, I decided it would be formally stronger to separate it and place it as an introduction to both Release and the rest of the CD. It is called Trailer partly because it was originally the second part of another piece, and partly because, placed at the beginning of the CD, it could be seen to act as a ‘trailer’ for the other pieces.
