Improvised pieces for large orchestra, based on different game rules or organizing ideas. Results aren't as overtly gimmicky as on previous albums, which takes away from the fun, but this is still good stuff.|
1- Fourteen-segment piece that starts loud but is mainly quiet and sneakily rustling. Nice segments will bells, and later with prerecorded voice
2- Big and wild, w/wacky poetry. Great fast start w/ bells!
3- Trombone "concerto." Nicely tumbling feel, with occasional pauses where the trombone gets to solo.
4- Percussion trio. Quiet, starts inaudibly.
5- Building orchestral swirls. Pauses at about -2:00 for a series of "solos" by cell phones -- cute idea but possibly too quiet for radio
6- Quiet, minimalist strings. Builds to big loud ending. Kind of monochromatic, doesn't need to be 10 minutes.
7- Drunken marching-band fanfares, bookended by quiet patches
