Early experimental work in 4 mvts. 1st mvt begins with piano lids closed and percussive effects created by striking below the keyboard with the flat of the hand and making a ‘foot noise’ on the sustain pedal when depressing. 3rd mvt alleatoric with ‘shout’ into piano plus pizz., gliss., sustain pedal and chopstick effects on open strings. Avant-garde work with ‘clapping’ at the end.
