Performance by Xenia Pestova, Wellington, 2000:

Several distinct bodies of musical material are simultaneously present. The performer’s (and the listener’s) attention is thrown abruptly from one to another, so that the perception of each identity is coloured by its environment. The component identities amplify each other as their energies are transferred, transcending their own boundaries.
