Comments  This piece takes its musical structure from the celestial siting rings found at the pre-Columbian archaeological dig at Cahokia Mounds in south-western Illinois, at the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers. This site contains the largest pre-Columbian structure north of Mexico City and, also, the remains of a Native American city which population of over 50,000 constituted one of the largest pre-European settlements in North America. This musical piece is a meditation of the uses of time as recorded at this site by the transit of the stars and planets overhead. (Recommend purchase of two copies for performance.) Chance composition. To be performed with the composer's DreamFrame.
