Transformation uses the same two chordal poles from Stasis. This time the chords become the source material for a sine-wave chord generator able to produce a stream of variants which gradually make a transformation from one chord to the other. This is an identical technique to that used by the composer in the 4th study of Touching the Distance for solo piano.
However, instead of a slow choral, this violin solo is realised in a continuum of arpeggios similar to that found in Bach’s D minor Chaconne. The idea of transformation has become one of the most consistent preoccupations of 20C musical thought.
