LE CHAT DU JEAN-BAPTISTE                    audiosatisfactory      exhibits Phase B activity

Most of the preparation and planning for the performance of JB's cat took place at the piano prior to this recording. The only written contribution can be seen here below:

The harmonic language utilized in this extempore performance of Le Chat du Jean-Baptiste relies heavily on diminished chordal structures, and sounds quite experimental in certain places (from [1:071:15] for example). The intention was to create a miniature rondo structure, where the notated motive returns after interspersed contrasting sections but the performance as a whole remains brief.
