“The more constraints one imposes, the more one frees one's self of the chains that shackle the spirit.” -Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971)


Taking this quote for inspiration, I crafted a piece which has an interesting constraint, only using 4 notes.  !ith the melodic constraint of 4 notes; A, B, C, D; I focused on a composition that challenges the players through different motives and different rhythmic challenges.
