  • The work’s title suggests an image of different kinds of sediment that are variously carried and deposited by moving water. At the beginning of the piece, elementary sonic particles are stirred up in the music’s sound stream, producing turbulent swirls of noise. As the music’s flow etches a path, these basic components group together into thin streaks of sound, emerging from the texture as intertwining threads of faltering pitches. Periodically, these lines coalesce to form the work’s harmonic and motivic material, descending from the sound stream as musical deposits, only to be swept up again by the next current. At two points in the work, pitch streams align to correspond with the overtone structures engendered by the oboe and bassoon, respectively. Following the re-construction of their harmonic spectra, these instruments emerge from the ensemble with fluid melodic gestures, shadowed by the other instruments of the ensemble. However, these too are eventually subsumed within the texture, dissolved by the work’s gathering momentum.
