Obfuscated Ontogeny (Nick Bacchetto)

from ABLAZE AMIDST THE HORNS by Ignition Duo



Composer's Notes:

"Obfuscated Ontogeny consists of two types of material: that which is predominantly pitched and that which is predominantly noise. Simple procedures accrue which 'evolve' the material along readily perceivable lines of development. That material is then broken into proportionally disparate sections and presented out of order, thus obscuring processes which, if presented in their original formatting, would be evident."
