The Seashell's Center
Work no. 202
This is one of the satellite pieces of Many Pink Butterflies, derived from that work's Solo III. Each solo in MPB is about a minute long, and explores a single compositional technique. A satellite piece based on a solo develops that technique further. In this case, the technique was reiteration of a short motif: obvious at first, but gradually buried under more and more notes. Practically nothing from the original solo survived in The Seashell's Center, although the new work's textures are still based on the original ones. The repeated motif is different, too. The title is a reference to the seventh season Adventure Time episode called The Hall of Egress.
