In this piece, I've taken the ideas I had behind the formal structure of my earlier upload, Episode #1, and I've changed it up a bit (largely listening to the critiques that work garnered).

I've never been good describing my ideas in detail -long standing trait. Much like Episode #1, this work takes the basic Rondo structure and expands upon it. When I originally thought of the idea for an episodic (rondo-like) formal structure, my original goal was to intersperse the A sections with heavily contrapuntal material (B, C, and D sections all being fugal in nature). While I still may do a work like this in the future, I think that -for now- I'm trying to find a way to make this type of structure work for the language that I use in my works. 

The score is  a lot nicer (thank you MUSESCORE!)

in spite not liking atonal music, I have to say I found this piece quite compelling. It's very well structured. I like the section starting at b38, and the clusters work really well.

Also, well done to musescore! It seems to work great! Is this the new musescore design? I saw a youtube video where they comment on a lot of improvements.. Maybe I should give it a try

Congratulations on a sucessful piece!

The restatements of the rondo theme is very clever, as you never let its apparition become obvious. This makes up for a very continuous flow.

Also, everything is musicaly pleasing and the shortness of the piece feels very apropriate. It seems fresh throughout and leaves no space for a tired ear.
