ISORHYTHMIC SUITE in SEVEN EVOLUTIONS A series of ten notes and nine metrical values are superimposed, creating a texture in which each repetition of the melodic series occurs one value further down the metrical row. The occult inflexibility of this embedded structure, found in various manners in each of the isorhythmic pieces, is countered by a fluid and harmonically mobile counterpoint in the remaining voices.
