About this Piece

Free to X starts with the additive rhythmic principle of Philip Glass and combines it with the drones of La Monte Young. Both grow and build until complication pushes them into a less controllable realm. Here the drone ceases to be so friendly and swallows the rhythmic pulse in a cacophony of electronic noise.
