Textures Hugh Le Caine

Textures (1959) (1:23) uses trombone sounds with the Multi-track, exploring a twelve-tone row. Every detail is carefully defined in three sections of a sixteen-page score. At the climax, a dense cloud of several hundred pitches is heard, each of them one tenth of a semitone apart.
