The Rat in the Wiring

Essentially, this is the stand-alone version of the first movement of Cornered, a long piece for mixed quintet (Pierrot-style) that draws on the ebb and flow of life in my neighborhood in Seattle. It is a bit of a stylistic experiment for me – I almost think of this as trying to do a Sondheim-like musical number (a real snappy one) but in instrumental form, with a bit of “hanging out at Guitar Center” DNA thrown into the mix.
