“…Mikel Rouse’s uncanny attempts to blend romantic pop and just intonation…”

The first counterpoetry orchestra piece. This recording, along with the influential Living Inside Design, were the “test pieces” for Rouse’s new “counterpoetry technique” which would be fully realized in the first opera of the Trilogy, Failing Kansas. Repeating vocal phrases of spoken word in counterpoint are accompanied by strings, vibes and marimba creating a sonic world that is both acoustic and digital at the same time.
