CONVERSATION WITHOUT WORDS, by Andrew May
Discussing another composer’s work, my friend Danyel and I disagreed as to whether a conversation was a suitable model for a musical discourse. Meditating on the question, I thought of this score. Perhaps he may someday hear a realization of it that persuades him, perhaps not; either way, we will continue our conversations.
