Inevitability was written in response to Disquiet Junto Project 0390: Pace Quickens
     Step 1: For this project you’ll be reworking either a field recording or an old piece of your own music. The slower the better, as far as the original recording is concerned. Reading through these instructions first may aid in your selection process.
     Step 2: Choose a field recording or and old piece of music of your own. (Define “old” as you like. “Preexistence” is the main factor.)
     Step 3: Speed it up considerably (at least by a third, maybe by more).
     Step 4: Add one or two new elements that proceed at the piece’s new pace.

A year and a half ago I wrote Music For Meditation. Doubling the tempo gave the piece a completely different flavor, and the tubular bells more reminded me of fate, which I felt would better be represented by a gong. The piece had originally been written for string quintet (two violas, two cellos and string bass) but I felt that the movement of this piece might better be represented by woodwinds, so I re-orchestrated for seven low instruments.

Inevitability was written for two Alto Flutes, two English Horns, Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Bassoon and Gong.
