Note from the composer
The first Sketch was born of a predefined harmonic structure within which the piece took form. Each subsequent Sketch was based on the original theme with the goal of creating a different view of the source in each Sketch. As nine artists would all interpret a subject differently, each Sketch is a different interpretation of the original form. The harmonic structure of each is not identical, but is nearly so.
Sketches 3, 4, 6, 7, and 9 are playable as written on a small 26 string harp the likes of the Harpsicle or Ravenna 26. Sketches 1, 2, and 5 are playable on a small 26 string harp if played one octave higher than written.
