This was written in response to Disquiet Junto Project 0279: Word Interiorities.

The word selected through a random number generator was “this”, which did not initially appear to be very interesting, given that the idea was to take apart a single spoken word. I grabbed a recording of its pronunciation and played it over and over, trying to figure out how to deconstruct a single syllable, which finally offered a jumping off point. I selected wind instruments through the sounding of the pronunciation and synced them to a repeated recording of the word.

Warning: Do not try to perform this piece at home, after all, I paired it with my image, Bad Decisions.

The work is scored for Flute, Clarinet, Tenor Saxophone, Bassoon and Horn.
