Little Red Wagon Ryan Patterson

This piece focuses on the development of gestures and objects while maintaining a relatively smooth progression. It is comprised of three sections, each building a higher climax than the previous section. The thread connecting the three sections is a slowly accelerating pitch shifted loop, inaudible much of the time, and often unrecognizable. This loop is the backbone of the piece, from which the rest of the objects hang. As the work progresses, the “backbone” becomes increasingly important and more discernible as a separate part. The steady acceleration of this sound also helps to build the climax of the work.
