    Work for solo piano requested and first performed by Nicholas Ashton.
    This work samples vertical chord structures from an earlier piece for piano (EVEN MORE GEESE), which itself was derived from an ensemble piece (More Geese).
    These samples are presented embedded in a durational structure as if preserved in amber, separated by silences.
    The work employs all three pedals in various combinations to heighten the harmonic content.
