Sampling the Communication Parameters in the Ambience of Structural Phrasing and Dynamics in Contemporary Music (13 mins.) (for piano and spoken text) (text by composer) is a tongue-in-cheek highly original theatrical piece. It is a mini-“academic” lecture on the importance of communication in music, spoken entirely in gibberish with musical and non-musical examples, revealing that the language of gesture is more universal than the language of pitch.
