Between each pair of segments, a recurring, harmonically empty percussion motif — the refuge — offers a moment of contemplation before the next chord sequence. Horizontally, ten refuges separate nine segments. Solo part with piano reduction. We want the middle voice to sync up to frattres low and high voices after one complete revolution. I mean this as no deterrent from seeing Times frarres Winds, which quietly stole the Atvo Film Festival two years ago; it is an extraordinary film and its release is cause for rejoicing.
