Misc. Comments

Improvised a viola sonata with Notator in 1991, but relinquished most of the meandering discourse in 2012 except the thematic 3 measures at the outset of the first movement and the 4 initial measures of the last movement. The latter was intended to translate into music the notion of "recursion".
A major overhaul is in the works, should be ready in a couple of weeks (09/26/16). This announcement is meant to prod me on.
Said prodding brought announced version to fruition a little later than announced (10/26/16). The third movement is entirely new, it was added to create a more balanced work.
