Composition Notes

This work presents variations on the opening 13 bars of Katikaze, still in 12/8 meter and
with 8th-note motion throughout.   Again, the source sequence -- tribonacci summation in
mod 12 -- determines each measure's initial pitch default, while a non-repeating series
extracted from the current sequence member onward determines the last eleven.

New here is a dual scheme of interval expansion, varying in kind between the outer and
inner series.   From 1st-of-bar to next 1st, interval defaults are multiplied by a constant;
within the bar, they are additionally complemented or compounded by a fixed number of
octaves.   Each resulting pitch that exceeds the piano range is replaced with a rest.

The score indicates after movement numbers the interval-class expansions (factor;8vas)
for each variation.   All told, this score is intended as a follow-along during automatic
performance rather than as specification for human pianists.   I have, then, wishing to
keep qualitative distances vivid, steered clear of ottava notation.
